Dooner’s weekend predictions – February 23rd



Boyle got the job done away to St. Bernard’s last weekend and their Connacht Cup run continues. They’ll be hoping to keep in touch with the top three when they travel to Shiven this weekend.

  St. Peter’s meanwhile can leapfrog Castlerea Celtic this weekend when they take on Ballaghaderreen. As it stands, the Athlone side have two games in hand so this could be a pivotal weekend in the race for the title.
