The Aodh Ruadh reserves were presented with a stylish new set of jerseys at Páirc Aoidh Ruadh on Saturday by Gerald McGloin, owner of prominent local business Northern Refrigeration Services.
Aodh Ruadh chairman William Doogan was delighted to welcome the new sponsor.
"It's great to have Gerald, Northern Refrigeration Services and Daikin on board. Gerald has been involved in the club for many years and has supported us in numerous ways. I hope all club members support his business in any way they can.
"Without local businesses helping to support the community, clubs wouldn't be able to function, and I hope people recognise that and support our local businesses."
Already steeped in the club, Gerald McGloin was happy to step up to the mark as joint sponsors of the Aodh Ruadh senior and reserve teams.
"I've been involved in the club since I came back home out of England in the 90s and had a lot of enjoyment on and and off the pitch with the Aodh Ruadh. I'm delighted to help the club in any way possible, and hopefully the players will enjoy their time in the jersey over the next few years as much as I did."
The club once again thanks Gerald, Northern Refrigeration Services and Daikin for their generous sponsorship and a lovely set of new jerseys.

Speaking at the launch of the partnership, Connect Mental Health Chairperson Ciaran McLoone said, "We are delighted to partner with 50808 to promote this innovative service to the people of Donegal. Sometimes it’s easier to text than talk and this service will undoubtedly offer support to people of all ages throughout the county.

This partnership with Aodh Ruadh is part of a wider campaign to ensure that the people of Ballyshannon are aware of, and have access to, this important service."

We should also acknowledge we have already had great access to mental health training resources thanks to Connect Mental Health and that has been a tremendous benefit to the club."
John Meehan also spoke very enthusiastically about the partnership.
"I'd like to acknowledge and thank Aodh Ruadh for taking the step to link in with Connect Mental Health. I work in suicide prevention, but suicide prevention is not just a HSE responsibility, it's everybody's and I think the fact that Aodh Ruadh now are carrying that message on their jerseys this year will really help spread that word."

Ballyshannon Bingo
A total of 26 separate winners bagged the 30 prizes on offer at last week's bingo. Well done to Sean Coughlin on winning the €500 jackpot as well as a €50 line prize. Well done also to Kathleen McGee on taking home the mini jackpot prize of €250. Our other house winners included Christina Gallagher, Aine McMahon, Sharon Connolly, Doreen McDonald, John McGreevy, Karl O'Brien, Kathleen McGee and Deirdre Kelly. The €1,200 snowball survived by the skin of its teeth in an intense closing few numbers, with Karl O'Brien unlucky to have checked just one number past the 47 number limit, so had to take consolation with the €100 house prize! To welcome in the June Bank holiday we are adding a digit to the snowball limit so this week's snowball rolls to €1,250 on 48 numbers or less - surely it can't survive much longer! Looking forward to another great night next Friday where again there will be over €3,000 in prizes on offer. Once again we will be back broadcasting to the world from Bingo HQ via Zoom at 9pm. If you haven't already played, you can find full details on the Ballyshannon Bingo Facebook page. Books are available to buy on our page right now. Remember, if you don't have access to a printer, Mary in A Novel Idea will be happy to print your book for a small fee.
Look forward to seeing you all again this Friday evening!
