Our season drew to a close on Sunday with a 2-6 to 0-5 defeat away to Letterkenny Gaels. Once again promotion eluded us and it is third tier football for a sixth season. Thanks to Packie McGrath, his back room team and everyone who lined out for Aodh Ruadh over the course of the season for their efforts this year. We have some pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org.
The under 21 semi-final against Saint Eunan’s is currently pencilled in for Sunday, 15th November.
Indoor winter League
The first night of the under 12 Ballyshannon Shoe Company indoor winter league saw some excellent football and keenly contested games, with Sylvester in charge of proceedings on the pitch.
The Kestrels won all their games on the night, but the rest of the league is very evenly matched with three points, a win in other words, separating second and sixth in the table. With a few celebrity appearances expected from under 12s who were unable to make it last Friday it’s still very much all to play for this Friday on the final night of the league. We are playing from 6pm to 8pm with the second set of round robins. Final league placing will decide if teams will play-off for the cup, shield or plate titles. Where teams are level on points score difference will decide, or if that is equal, penalties. The round robins are followed the three final games. Medals and trophies presented afterwards with team managers to select their captains.

The last two Euroshot winners savoured their fruits of their labours over the past week.
The under 16s travelled out to the Breesy Centre where they enjoyed a bit of groundball before sitting down to a great feed sponsored by Kernan’s Spar. It was a great way to wrap up the year and thanks to David O’Donnell and all at Spar for their kind sponsorship. On Monday evening the under 12s travelled to Bundoran Cineplex to watch Spectre, an evening the team enjoyed immensely.
Huge thanks to Eclipse Cinemas Bundoran for their kind sponsorship of this prize and looking after the lads so well.
