It wasn't to be for Gerald McGloin's charges on Sunday evening as they took on Gaoth Dobhair in the under 16 county decider in Letterkenny. Aodh Ruadh were clearly showing the weariness of playing a bruising county semi-final which went to extra-time just 48 hours previously. In addition Gaoth Dobhair were not in charitable mood.

The under 14s made one of the longest intra-county journeys in the GAA when they travelled to tackle Malin on Monday evening. Unfortunately the 260 km round trip won it on this occasion. There was just a point between the sides at half-time with the scores pegged at 2-6 to 1-8. Unfortunately the Inishowen men got goal-happy in the second half and the Ernesiders lost out on a 7-11 to 4-9 scoreline.

The under 11s hosted Grange, on Saturday morning. Aodh Ruadh ran out winner's in the end of a good competitive contest.

Aodh Ruadh under 16s girls made it two from two with a hard earned win over a determined St Eunan's outfit last Tuesday. St Eunan's did finish with a good rally of points, but the win went the way of the homesters after an absorbing and sporting contest, Aodh Ruadh won 2-11 to 0-11.

The under 12s were in action at home again last Thursday against Carndonagh. The lads hurled really well against a physically strong Carn team and ran out worthy winners on a 3-7 to 2-5 scoreline.

Pick of the scores was a goal from Conor Callaghan in the second period after some good work up the right wing.

The boys found it more difficult to attack against the wind but this was probably their first time playing in these conditions so the experience will serve them well. Best for Fanad were Oisin Lynch, Cillian Gilmore and Dan Martin and it was great to see Rian Jackson in the Gaeil Fhánada colours again. Team: Oisín Lynch, Harry Blaney, Cillian Gilmore, Rian Jackson,Iosaf McAteer, Ollie Mc Ateer, Ronan Wilson; Ronan Gibbons, Dan Martin; Jack Dunleavy, Christian Gibbons, Conor Callaghan.

The U-16 boys season came to a cruel end with and extra-time defeat to Aodh Ruadh in the county semi-final on Friday evening. They lads looked in deep trouble at half-time as they trailed by 11 points. However, they showed bundles of character and fight to drag themselves back into the tie. They even led as the game entered injury time but were indebted to a stunning Shay McBride save which saw the game head to extra time. Aodh Ruadh however got the rub of the green with two killer goals in the second period to eventually secure victory. SP Barrett and his side can be immensely proud of their year and with a bit more luck could have played in two Division One county finals this year.
