Realt Ruadh got the points from their league match at the weekend when Glenties didn't travel. The U16s were defeated by Four Masters after a very close match in Tir Chonaill Park on Tuesday night last.

The Reserve fixture against Glenswilly was an irrelevant affair as both teams had already exited the championship the previous week .Both teams played out a match with three Bundoran veterans lining out in the Glenswilly colours to make up the numbers and it was they who ended up on the winning team.

The senior match ended in a very disappointing result for the homeside with the visitors leaving as comfortable winners.

Due to our victory over Ardara we finished third in the table and therefore avoid the relegation play offs.

A big thank you to everyone who helped out with the stewarding at last Sunday’s championship match and a special word of thanks to the Magh Ene College for the use of their car park.


It was honours even at Dunkineely as Aodh Ruadh, already through to the intermediate championship quarter-finals. They preserved their unbeaten record with a draw.

The minors had a memorable victory for the Aodh Ruadh minors on Friday evening. After drawing with Kilcar in Father Tierney Park, they carved out a 3-6 to 1-7 victory down in Towney to progress to the next stage in the championship.

The second game of the under 13 league programme saw Aodh Ruadh keeping a clean sheet as they earned a comprehensive victory over Bundoran in a brilliant all-round team performance by the Ernesiders.

Hurling: The under 16s had a very busy week last week. First up on Tuesday evening was a trip to Letterkenny to take on Letterkenny Gaels. Due to work commitments and injury we only had 12 players able to make the trip. We fielded a very young team with only one player overage in 2017. As they have done all season the lads put in a great battling performance. We were worthy winners on a scoreline of 6-7 to 2-4.

On Thursday evening we were up against table toppers Setanta in Father Tierney Park. It was the first time this season we had 16 players available to us. They recorded a famous 2-9 to 1-3 victory. We wish captain Pauric Keenaghan a speedy recovery from an injury picked up in the first half, we hope to see him back in action soon.

The under 12s had their final league game on Thursday in Letterkenny against the Gaels. It was a closer game than expected and we only led at halftime by a point. The second half saw the lads play in a manner more in keeping with their performances and ran out convincing winners. They have been unbeaten throughout the league and have now qualified for the A final against St Eunan's. It is our first time qualifying for an A final at under 12 level for a long number of years.

Ladies: Aodh Ruadh under 16s drew against St Naul's last Tuesday in a game which ebbed back and forth. Ballyshannon thought they had clinched victory with a late point from Mary Flora Scott, but with some confusion over the score the referee called the game a draw.

Naomh Columba conceded the first game of the under 13 programme.

The €400 jackpot was split three ways with Molly Kerrigan, Agnes Ryder and Ann Gallagher all getting a slice. There was no winner of the summer snowball so it now stands at €550 on 48 numbers or less. Bingo as usual at 9pm on Friday at the Abbey Centre, with a massive €2,100 prize fund.
