Aodh Ruadh lift Donegal U-14 title with victory over Killybegs in final

Aodh Ruadh U-14 Ladies - county champions

Congratulations to the Aodh Ruadh U-14 girls on winning the Donegal title.
This special bunch of girls put in a devastating performance to bridge a 14 year gap and bring the county title back to Ballyshannon.
They defeated Killybegs on a 7-14 to 1-3 scoreline in Tir Chonaill Park, Donegal town on Monday night.
Defensively nothing much more could have been asked with the Fintra girls confined to one score from play. Up the other end Aodh Ruadh put together some fine passages of play and took advantage of most of the chances they created.
Ballyshannon were well in command at half-time and stretched out the advantage over the course of the second half. The final whistle was met with great celebrations from the big Ballyshannon support present.
When everyone was calmed down again captain Caoimhe Hughes O'Brien collected the trophy after making a gracious acceptance speech. Then it was back to the town for a good tour of beeping before a great spread of food up in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh.
The victory was a real squad performance and the Aodh Ruadh team which brought the trophy back to Erneside was Áine Hill; Ciara Caldwell, Grainne Maguire, Hannah Gallagher; Megan Kane, Lucy McGlynn, Annie Keon; Caoimhe Hughes O'Brien, Niamh Hughes; Evelyn Rose Gallagher, Aoibhínn McGarrigle, Emer O'Brien; Ciara Gillespie, Katie O'Brien, Shauna O'Mahoney; Rhianna Masterson Burrows, Fódhla Sheerin, Niamh McGloin, Niamh Irwin, Kelly Irwin, Eve Flood and Catherine Browne.
The team's next outing will be the postponed Colman Kerr tournament.
