Aodh Ruadh club notes

October 20, 2020

County action

Well done to Declan Bonner and the Donegal team as they secured Division 1 football for 2021 with a comfortable win over Tyrone last Sunday. We wish the squad the best of luck on their travels to Kerry this weekend where they have an outside chance of sneaking a first league crown since 2007. If Donegal win, and Dublin and Galway draw, the Tir Chonaill men's excellent scoring difference should see them claim the title. Elsewhere, we'll be hoping to scalp Tyrone for the second time in a week this Saturday when the Red Hands visit Ballybofey for the Ulster minor football championship quarter-final. We would especially like to wish our own lads on the team, Kyle Murray and Cian Rooney, the very best of luck. The game throws-in at 11.30am in MacCumhaill Park.


Upcoming AGMs

The Bord na nÓg AGM will take place via Zoom on Sunday, 8th November at 5pm. Anyone with an interest in the development of underage football in Ballyshannon is warmly invited to attend. The Club AGM will take place on Sunday 29th November. Whether this year's AGM will take place in the form of a face to face meeting or remotely will be determined by what Covid alert level we are at nearer the time. All sub-committee reports should be with Club Secretary, Lisa McTernan, by Friday 20th November. The Ladies AGM will take place on Sunday 15th November.


Drive-in Bingo 

Unfortunately, last week's Drive in Bingo was cancelled. Our apologies to anyone who didn’t get word in time and turned up to play. With current restrictions around living with coronavirus, there will be no Drive in Bingo this week. We will continue to keep the situation under review and hope to get restarted in the not too distant future.



We extend our condolences to Paddy Kelly and all the Kelly family on the sad passing of his brother, Michael, recently.
