Donegal also won in Greenford, London on Saturday evening where Val Murray's Masters made it three wins from three games to maintain their unbeaten start to the season with a ten point win over London. There was heavy Aodh Ruadh representation on the team with Packie McGrath and Kerry Ryan up the spine, but the plaudits went to Michael 'Sticky' Ward who hit eight points in the 0-15 to 0-5 victory.

Since the last under 14 update the side have played Ardara. The character and manner they played was very pleasing to the management and the players were all a credit to the jersey. On Monday Dungloe were the guests in Fr Tierney Park. This time Aodh Ruadh were back to the full compliment and they turned over the previous result to win by 3-11 to 2-8. Shane Delahunty was absolutely superb in the middle of the field while Jack Gallagher was very good at half forward.

There was a minute of silence ahead of Monday evening's game for Conor Morgan, a player with Dundalk Gaels who died in Cyprus recently who has links with the Aodh Ruadh club.

The under 10s next blitz away to Donegal Town on Saturday.The following Saturday June 23rd sees us stage our annual Mick Shannon tournament.

Ladies - The under 14s played Robert Emmet's in their first league outing of the year on Monday evening. Aodh Ruadh delivered a fine team performance with nine different players getting on the score sheet on the way to a good victory. Many thanks to Emmet's for their post match hospitality.

The under 14 Community Games side captured the county title on Friday evening following a sporting contest against a lively Buncrana outfit. Aoibhínn McGarrigle was player of the match, while Megan Kane and Annie Keon both put in star turns. Lucy McGlynn, Niamh McGloin, Rihanna Masterson Burrows were also in fine form. Thanks to all the players and parents who helped out last Saturday for the bucket collection at the bridge in Ballyshannon. Special thanks to Paul, Dolores and Ciara Gillespie who covered multiple slots.

Hurling - Last Tuesday we had a Féile send off in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh for the under 14s. The squad were presented with the gear for their trip to Féile na nGael and wished the best of luck for their weekend in Galway. Another important feature of this event was to recognise our generous sponsors and acknowledge the support they gave the squad. On behalf of the juvenile hurling committee chairman John Rooney thanked the local businesses who came on board and sponsored the gear for the squad. Terry Hughes of Straddle Filling Station sponsored the quarter zips, Eugene Gallagher, Nirvana Restaurant sponsored the bags while Colin Maguire, Mr Oilman sponsored the T Shirts.

Early on Friday morning Denis Daly, Daithi Breen and Kieran Daly headed off for Skehana, Galway with their talented squad to begin what was an unforgettable weekend. The lads arrived in Fohenagh, Galway for their opening games in Division 5 of National finals. The beautiful sunshine of the previous few days had been replaced by heavy rain and lightning, but thankfully the rain cleared for their opening game against Ahascragh. Aodh Ruadh got off to a brilliant start and led by a goal midway through the first half. The local lads realised they were in for a battle and upped their game and got a couple of goals within a few minutes. Ahascragh ran out comfortable winners 4-7 to 1-5.

Before that game the great Galway hurlers Padraic and Cathal Mannion spoke to the lads about their careers and how important it is to continually work at your game. For the second game against Broadford of Kildare it was a more determined Aodh Ruadh team that took the field. They drew 2-4 to 1-7.

On a beautiful Saturday morning the lads lined up against their hosts and they ran out winners on a 0-8 to 1 and qualified for the cup quarter-final.

The cup quarter final was fixed for Four Roads in Roscommon against Kilconieron from east Galway. A goal early in the second half for Aodh Ruadh proved the decisive score of the game and put Aodh Ruadh into the lead for the first time. Try as hard as they could Kilconieron couldn't break down the Ballyshannon lads and they held on for a famous victory on a score line of 1-6 to 0-7.

In the semi-final on Sunday they came up against a strong amalgamation of Mullagh / Kiltormer from the hurling heartland of east Galway. As chance would have it, Kiltormer is the home club of the late John Larkin RIP who was a great worker for hurling in Aodh Ruadh. We got off to a great start with an early goal by our captain Danny Breen Brosnan. At half time we led by the minimum 1-2 to 0-4. Galway lads dug out victory in a wonderful game 0-7 to 1-3. They were a credit on and off the field. Huge credit to Dennis, Daithi, Kieran and the lads themselves for all their work this season.

There was no winner of last week's Aodh Ruadh Lotto jackpot of €1,500. The winning numbers drawn were 1, 2, 5, 6, 10 and 17. In the lucky dip €20 went to Valentine Gallagher, Cluain Barron; Gerry Quigley, Dunkineely; Eamon McGrath, Carrickboy; Rose Gallagher, Portnason; and Ann, Mark and Mena Granaghan.
