Well done our minors boys team who drew with Glenswilly on St Patrick’s Day in the minor league. Playing against the wind in the first half they battled hard and were just two points down at halftime. A goal from Kyle O’Meara in the third minute of the second half put us one up. Goals in the 16th and 19th minute of the second half for Glenswilly put them five up and it looked like they had it wrapped up. Glenfin dug deep and scored five  unanswered points to level the tie and when Odhran McGlynn put us one up in the 31st minute it looked like we had the points. But Glenswilly were to have the last say and equalised in the 35th minute to level for a final score of Glenswilly 3-3, Glenfin 1-9.

Thanks to all the stewards that worked hard to make Saturday night such a great success. Special thanks go to the grounds staff that put in such hard work to have the pitch in great shape.

Both teams travelled to play newly promoted Aodh Ruadh, Ballyshannon on Sunday afternoon. The reserves were short a number of regulars. But despite this racked up a high score of 4-7 with goals from David White and Emmet McCormack but Ballyshannon had the nerve to get over the line and win by a single point of 4-8 to 4-7.

The seniors were also short a few players and they too were pipped by the hosts by a single point.

Registration is now due. Membership must be paid before March 31st, please ensure you register before this date.

There was no winner of this week’s lotto prize of €5,000. The numbers drawn were 3, 4, 8 and 15. Next week’s jackpot is €5,100.


MALIN

The seniors and reserves lost  at home at the weekend to Ardara.

The club would like to thank all those who helped make our annual St. Patrick’s Day Big Breakfast a great success.

This week’s lotto jackpot of €500 was won by Francis McLaughlin, Fildara who shares jackpot with Loreto Reilly, Dublin. The numbers drawn were 7-6-4-3-5-1-2. Next week’s jackpot is €500.

This year’s Easter camp will take place on Wed 23rd, Thurs 24th and Fri 25th, more details to follow. Contact Danny Lafferty for more details.

The minors drew with Moville on St. Patrick’s Day..A last goal prevented Malin from victory in a hard fought game. Sixteen year old Ronan Kelly filled the void of the injured senior player Cormac Cullinan at fullback turned in a  man of the match display.  Sean Byrne continued his impressive form with another honest hard working display particularly in the second half. A gutsy all round team effort in harsh conditions. A speedy recovery to Daniel Houghton who got injured last weekend and hopefully Conor Bambrick will be returning to the panel.

The 'Rising Stars Music Academy' will start on Saturday the 28th of January. For more information contact Annah Lafferty on 0866680565.

APDH RUADH

We require a full turn-out of club stewards and helpers for Sunday's Division One National League game between Monaghan and Donegal at F.r Tierney Park.

All stewards must be at the grounds for 12 noon.

The half-time draw will be co-ordinated by Bord na nÓg with proceeds going to the Aodh Ruadh schools coaching programme.

On Saturday morning club members are asked to come to Fr Tierney Park from 10am to 12 noon to assist with final preparations for the game.

Last Thursday Aodh Ruadh laid to rest one of the club's great servants, Jimmy Gallagher. We provided a guard of honour on the short trip from Jimmy's home on Erne Street to St Patrick's Church as he made his final journey. Jimmy had invested much of his life in making Aodh Ruadh the great club it is, having served as treasurer, secretary and numerous other roles during his many years of stalwart devotion to the Ballyshannon cause. He is survived by his brother Michael,sisters Antoinette and Marian, brother-in-law John; sister-in-law Margaret, nephews and nieces and a large circle of friends.

Time running out to get your membership sorted. Only 180 members are currently listed as having submitted registration for 2017. This means somewhere in the order 300 plus people have yet to pay club membership.

Registration forms and fees need to be submitted by March 31st deadline. Membership can be paid to Gerry Ferguson at Ferguson's Jewellers.

Aodh Ruadh are making a habit of second half comebacks. They overturned a half-time deficit last week against Ardara to win by a point and repeated the trick here against MacCumhaill's.

The reserves picked their first league in a real rollercoaster of a game against MacCumhaill's. There were some big performances throughout, particularly in the second half with Gary Carty putting up huge miles, Ronan Drummond and Diarmaid Slevin controlling play and Oisin Kerr, Eugene Drummond and Ryan Patton relieving a lot of pressure from half back. The contribution of Shane Dorrian was massive, tallying a fine score of 2-3 in his first senior game.

The minors had a hard earned draw in Dungloe in their first league outing on St Patrick's Day.

Aodh Ruadh under 16s entertained Four Masters on a dreadful St Patrick's Day morning for their first competitive outing of the season. While Four Masters were too strong on the day a number of players rose to the challenge well. Senan Rooney gave it his absolute all, Mark Gettins took some nice scores and Harry Howarth was another who worked hard for the team. Man of the match was David Doherty who worked like a demon all game long despite the awful conditions.

There will be no under 10 training on Friday night. Our internal under 10 blitz continues on Saturday at Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh.

Thanks to all who attended and who helped out with the Aodh Ruadh Ladies Teenage Disco at the Breesy Centre.

The minor team opened their league campaign at home to Letterkenny Gaels on Saturday. We fielded a young team and due to injuries only had the bare 13 players. The final score was Aodh Ruadh 1-7, Letterkenny Gaels 3-1. It was a great team performance full of hard work and great discipline.

The under 14s open their league campaign this Thursday away to Four Masters.

Club members are asked to note that the annual table quiz organised by the Park / Development Committee will take place in Owen Roe's on the Thursday before Easter, April 13th, at 9.30pm.

It was certainly unlucky for the 13 who picked Mayo to win on Sunday, along with two who had Cork and Clare to win. So as we head for week six there are ten in the race to be the Last Man Standing. Those left in with a chance of winning the title are Sean and John, Niamh Duffy, Maureen Keenaghan, Pauric Keenaghan, Shane Cronin, Gerard Ferguson, Edel Sheerin, Sean O'Mahoney, Stephen Lynch and Tanya O'Shea.

There was no winner of last week's lotto jackpot of €2,000. The winning numbers drawn were 5, 6, 7, 9, 15 and 18. In the lucky dip €20 went to Mary Duggan, Cornhill; Una Bonner, Assaroe View; Rose Gallagher, Portnason; Chris Kelly Cashelard; and Dara M. Timoney, Cashelard. Next draw is in Dicey Reilly's with a jackpot of €2,100.


NAOMH BRID

The reserve team had a great victory against Letterkenny Gaels last Sunday. They won on a scoreline of Naomh Brid 1-5 Letterkenny Gaels 0-5. Christy Price got the all important goal. There was excellent performances from Richard Walsh, TJ Gallagher, Michael Gallagher, and Gerard Martin. It was 13 a side. Naomh Brid reserve: Peter Walsh, Michael Gallagher, Richard Walsh, Jamie Timoney, TJ Gallagher, Mickey Quinn, Stephen Mc Daid, Stephen walls, Billy Harron, Gerard Martin, Christy Price, Adam McClay, Callum Mc Grory.

Naomh Brid / Pettigo minors  were defeated on St Patrick’s Day against county champions Naomh Conaill. There was no overall winner of this week’s lotto draw. The jackpot now stands at €3,900. The numbers drawn were 2, 10, 11, 13, and 18. The €25 winners Stephen Anderson, Geraldine Walsh, Sinead Gallagher, and Joe Fox.


NA ROSSA

The club lotto draw took place last a Monday evening in the hall. No jackpot winner on the night. The numbers drawn were 15,18,20 and 28. Two lucky dip winners who receive €50 each were Gerry Hanlon, Leitir and Ann Boyle, Dooey. The jackpot now stands at €3,300.
