Aodh Ruadh are without doubt Donegal's most historic and successful club side. Whereas Naomh Muire are a "teenage" club having started in 1980.....Aodh Ruadh go back 102 years. Apart from the last decade 2000-2010....they have won at least a Senior Championship in every decade and were part of the great St Josephs side of the 60s and 70s. They have contributed some outstanding players to Donegal football including the record Donegal appearance player Brian Roper (pictured). A great club by all means.
This respect for our visitors will and should last to 6.15pm on Saturday evening but then the business of playing them starts as our Naomh Mhuire Seniors aim to stay top of the league table division 3. In the past, the Club would be simply content to have Aodh Ruadh and similar clubs appear at the banks but those days are gone.
Let's get down to all home games...and many away games this year and make big positive noises of support....an odd grunt and groan but not abuse at a ref and let the reserves and seniors know we are there .
These lads deserve this....so all out this Saturday evening and support the lads in action.
