Good luck also to our under 17s who start their season this week. They take on Four Masters on Friday in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh at 7.30pm.
The honour of being the first Aodh Ruadh team out in competitive action in 2021 fell to the under 13s who made the trip down to Glenties to face Naomh Conaill on Monday evening. In the first game it finished 5-10 to 11-14 in favour of the homesters. MJ Ward and Corey Sheridan were among the goals with Corey, MJ, Sean O’Neill and Garreth Brennan also landing some well taken points. Fionn Hartin, Sean O’Neill, MJ Ward and Corey Sheridan all played very well and won nearly every ball that went to them.
In the second game Aodh Ruadh had a mighty battle with their Naomh Conaill counterparts to emerge two point winners, 2-9 to 2-7. Jayden McGrath Clyne scored both goals and two points. There were also points for Sean Maguire, the twinners - Oisin and Eoghan McCadden, Joey Daly and Oisin Sweeny. Sean Maguire, Oisin Sweeny and Eoghan Blake Gallagher all had stand out games for the visitors. Next up for the under 13s is the visit of Ardara to Father Tierney Park next Monday at 7.30pm.
The action continues apace up on the Rock this Saturday with the under 11s hosting Naomh Conaill in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh at 11.30am.

Both sides are away for their opening fixtures with the intermediates heading to take on Glenswilly, while the juniors take on Red Hugh's. Both games throw in at 10.30am. The whole squad has put in a lot of work ahead of this season and we wish them all the very best of luck as Aodh Ruadh ladies football embarks on an exciting new chapter.
The under 16 girls had a useful work out on Bank Holiday Monday against Grange in Father Tierney Park. Special mention must go to Mollie Travers in goals who was in terrific form. In defence Orlaith Toland, Ciara Larkin and the player of the match Orlaith O’Neill never stopped, and they emptied every ounce of energy they had. In the middle of the field Lauren excelled and tormented the Grange defence. Annie Keon covered every blade of grass on the pitch and Cádhla Dolan kept the score board ticking over for Ballyshannon girls.
The under 14 ladies have a challenge against Glencar Manorhamilton this Friday. Players to be at the pitch in Manorhamilton for 6.30pm.

Our other house winners included Aislinn Quinn, Dean Regan, Geraldine Gallagher, Jim McGarrigle, Aisling Cullen, Ann Gallagher, Breda Gallagher, and Sheena Newell.
