CLG Aodh Ruadh are a GAA club based in the town of Ballyshannon in County Donegal. The club colours are Green and White and they play their home games at Father Tierney Park. One of Donegal's most successful clubs, they have won the Donegal Senior Football Championship on 12 occasions.
With Bundoran, Aodh Ruadh formed one half of the St Joseph's team that won seven County Championships and an Ulster Club Championship—so far the only Donegal team to achieve this feat. They also contributed three players to Donegal's 1992 All-Ireland success, Brian Murray, Gary Walsh and Sylvester Maguire.
In 2011, they created history by electing an all-female executive consisting of: Betty McIntyre, Chair, Emma Gaughan, Secretary, and Catherine McKee, Treasurer.
