All to play for in the IFC!




Mulryan Construction IFC Preview (Round Two)


Round Two of the Mulryan Construction Intermediate Football Championship takes place this weekend and it’s very much all to play for…

Group A

Kilglass Gaels v Creggs on Saturday in Kilglass at 5 pm

Creggs easily accounted for Kilbride last weekend while Kilglass ran into a very impressive Tulsk outfit. This looks a very tight match and both sides will be eyeing up a win. Creggs were sharp in attack and might just have enough for Niall Kilcrann’s side.

Prediction: Creggs

Kilbride v Tulsk on Saturday in Kilbride at 6.45 pm

Tulsk made a very good start last Saturday while in contrast Kilbride are struggling. Tulsk will be hoping to have bigger fish to fry later on in this championship but they should still be good enough to account for Albert Looby’s men in this local derby.

Prediction: Tulsk

Group B

Castlerea St. Kevin’s v Éire Óg on Saturday in Castlerea at 6.45 pm

The pressure is off both sides after good wins last weekend. Castlerea have a young team and will be hoping to build on their victory. Éire Óg were impressive last weekend and have unearthed a fine attacker in Mark O’Brien. I have a feeling that the Loughglynn men could cause an upset here.

Prediction: Éire Óg

St. Barry’s v Shannon Gaels on Sunday in Tarmonbarry at 2 pm

Both sides will come looking for a win. Barry’s lost out to Castlerea in the opening round but they still put up a decent showing while a depleted Shannon Gaels were well beaten by Éire Óg. Home advantage to decide it.

Prediction: St. Barry’s

Group C

Oran v St. Dominic’s in Athleague on Saturday at 5 pm

Oran were too strong for Kilmore last weekend but are without a lot of their more established players for one reason or another. Dominic’s have a lot of talented young players and are in transition. There won’t be a lot in it but Oran might just have enough.

Prediction: Oran

Kilmore v St. Aidan’s on Saturday in Kilbride at 5 pm

St. Aidan’s will have been happy with a share of the spoils last weekend against St. Dominic’s while Kilmore were poor against Oran, failing to score in the first half. Both sides know that a loss will put them into trouble.

Prediction: Kilmore.
