Donegal had an impressive win against Cork on Sunday and the supporters who travelled in bad weather conditions made it a great occasion.
We had a huge turnout of Aodh Ruadh members from all parts of the club to help out on the day.
It was a real team effort and thanks to all. Our workforce at the grounds deserve special mention as the pitch played well despite the huge rainfall of the preceding days.
Thanks to our advertisers who supported the publication of the souvenir match programme which was commended by many on Sunday. Congratulations also to our own Peter Boyle who once again impressed between the posts for the county. We have a huge gallery of pictures from the game up on aodhruadh.org.

We would like to congratulate Naimh Gallagher and Peadar McKeever on the birth of their son Pearce just before Christmas and also Shauna Slevin and Craig on the birth of their daughter Evie just after the New Year. All the girls here wish both families a happy and healthy future. Bring them home to Aodh Ruadh!
