Nifty Fifty winner was Franko Donnelly, winning ticket purchased from underage player Cathaoir Molloy. Franko didn’t match the bonus number drawn so the £5000 Jackpot is still there to be won. For your chance to win why not purchase a ticket from any of our weekly sellers? Better still, sign up for club membership at £5 per month by direct debit and you’ll be entered in the next fifty draws from the date of joining. See a committee member.
Our seniors defeated Naomh ColmCille on Thursday by two points. In atrocious conditions both teams deserve credit for producing a fine and exciting game of hurling. Eoghan Ruadh fought back from a shaky start to grab two goals in the first half after some hesitancy in the NCC defence. Naomh ColmChille relied almost entirely on placed balls though their second half goal was one of the scores of the night. A number of county players made their return to action although, with several still out injured, there was a certain amount of pressure on our young side. They faced up well to their opponents who’ve been in bullish form. However it’s now two victories over NCC this year for the team written off by many at the start of the season. An Charraig Mhór remain the kingpins at senior level. Our next game is against Cuchullains in Armagh league where hurling is definitely of a higher standard. This will give a truer reflection of the progress made since last year.
U12s played Chuchullains in a challenge match on Saturday and won over four twenty minute quarters - no fixtures in Antrim U12 and U14 leagues.
Eoghan Ruadh held a weekend of celebration to mark opening of Dan Morgan Hurling Wall at the Hurling Fields. The weather put paid to the Friday programme, cancellation of the Poc Fáda. Saturday saw the Hurling Fields host a major charity fundraiser for Hope, organised by Aodh Ruadh Ladies team. This included a mixed football match in which a Tyrone Select held off a Fermanagh select. This was followed by the launch of hundreds of Red, Green and Silver balloons, all purchased to support the charity. So if you happen to find such a coloured balloon with Hope label attached, please return to Caroline McGrath, the label that is; you can keep the balloon. There are chances to win a range of prizes. At the unveiling of the wall, we were delighted to see so many of the Morgan family. Dan and his family were, and remain, great supporters of all things GAA, particularly his brother Eamonn who represented Dungannon Clarkes and Tyrone; his late brother Mark gave so much to Gaelic football, hurling and camogie; and their countless nieces nephews played Gaelic games. Any who didn’t play were just as enthusiastic and generous in support of Eoghan Ruadh. It is fitting that our Hurling Wall will help nurture the skills of generations of hurlers to come and leave a lasting legacy to Dan’s memory.It was followed by refreshments and a novel event, Live Pig Racing, which all present enjoyed. Eoghan Ruadh extends sincere thanks to all who helped make this a wonderful event, despite indifferent weather. We particularly thank the Morgan family, management of St Patrick’s Youth Club, staff and Board of Governors of Bunscóil Aoidh Ruadh, Thomas Clarkes, Aodh Ruadh LGFC, Cumann Naomh Treasa, Molloy Fuels, Martin McGinn, Pol Hughes, all sponsors and people who purchased pigs, club volunteers and everyone who supported.
Best wishes to na cailíní Naoimh Treasa who will shortly contest three county championship finals, at post-primary, U14 and minor. This young club has made tremendous strides in the last ten years and we wish them all continued success.
Eoghan Ruadh were saddened to learn of the death of Frankie Doran, father of former youth player Karl. The Doran family have all given great service to the local GAA and we extend deepest sympathy to Karl, his mother Mary, brothers Mark and James, Frankie’s sisters Mary, Breda and Eileen and entire family circle. Go ndéanfaidh Dia trócaire ar a anam.

Our senior footballers came from behind at Eskra to secure a 1-10 to 1-10 draw in ACL. Unfortunately, only a handful of travelling supporters were able to make this game due to Blessing of the Graves ceremony in Moy. After we had missed a couple of early goal opportunities, Eskra held the edge in an error-ridden first half to lead 1-6 to 0-5. The visitors fell further behind by the end of the third quarter, but then played their best football to come from five down to earn a deserved share of the spoils. Points by Conall Duffy and Ryan Mellon (2 frees) ignited the comeback, second half substitute Ryan O’Neill in the right place at the right time to fist the equalising goal three minutes from the end. Team: Barry Gribbin; Francie McQuade, Tomás McNicholl, Tommy Conlon; Eunan Deeney (0-2), Philip Jordan, Niall Conlon; Ryan Mellon (0-2), James Devlin; Hugo Mackle, Anthony Rafferty (0-2), Harry Loughran; Conall Duffy (0-1), Kris Kavanagh (0-3), Colm Cavanagh.

Tír na nÓgs found the target only once more, a goal claimed by both Colm Jordan and Tiernan Donohue, enough to secure the team’s fourth win.Team: Nathan Brady; Peter McKearney, Niall Kelly, Philip McQuade; Brendan Kelly, Adam Currie, Jack Kelly; Donal Jordan, Colm Jordan; Niall McConville, Karol McQuade, Emmett Rafferty; Conall Laverty, Brian Catterson, Martin Conroy.

Rock had Galbally as visitors on Saturday. A goal straight from a Conor McCreesh 45 with virtually the last kick of the game saw Rock win both points after a tough encounter from two very committed teams. Galbally were the better team in the first half but points from Conor and James McCreesh, Aidan Girvan, Aidan McGarrity and Diarmaid Carroll kept Rock in touch, 0-8 to 0-5. The second half saw Rock step up a gear with points from Conor McCreesh. A Galbally goal which put them five clear 1-12 to 0-10 seemed to have the game won, but an Eamonn Ward goal after some good work by Diarmaid Carroll give Rock hope.

The seniors continued their league campaign with a hard fought victory over a dogged Eglish side. The Rahillys fell behind at the start but a Patrick Doris penaltly soon put them in front. Eglish dominated the remainder of the half and were leading by a point. In the second half it was more of the same and it wasn’t until the introduction of Colm Doris that the Rahillys were finally able to kick on in the last 10 minutes and secure the points 1-10 to 0-10.
The reserves, down a lot of starting regulars, lost their unbeaten record to Eglish reserves 0-7 to 1-8. Next up for the seniors and reserves is our parish neighbours Derrylaughan on Friday night.
