The under 14s recorded two good wins in the past week. The first was against Ardara last Wednesday in Fr Tierney Park and saw the visitors put up a strong fight in the opening quarter.

But Aodh Ruadh took a grip on the game to run out deserved winners. Katie O'Brien, Ciara Gillespie and Niamh Hughes were all in fine scoring form. Aoibhínn McGarrigle was superb at half forward while full back Grainne Maguire capped an excellent 60 minutes with a well taken point.

On Sunday Killybegs were the visitors to Ballyshannon. Aodh Ruadh rose to their task from the off and controlled matters from early on.

Cara Davitt and Hannah Gallagher were immense with Ciara Caldwell cool as ever. Megan Kane sealed a great display with a blaster of a goal. In midfield Caoimhe Hughes - O'Brien was simply immense, with Niamh Hughes offering good support in the middle third too.

Up front Katie O'Brien was unmarkable with Shauna O'Mahoney netting for the second game in a row and Evelyn Rose Gallagher a great outlet. Both games saw Áine Hill in unflappable form.

Gareth McGill and Aaron McGlinchey won numerous breaking ball in the half back line with Oisin Gallagher and Tiernan Kelly putting on an expedition of high fielding around the middle.
