Dooner’s weekend predictions – January 4th



This Saturday’s Challenge Cup game between Castlerea Celtic B and St. John’s Athletic has been called off as a mark of respect to St. John’s player Trevor Brennan, who tragically passed away last Sunday. A loyal member and supporter of both St. John’s Athletic and St. Dominic’s GAA, Trevor will be sorely missed by teammates, officials and his many friends. The thoughts and prayers of everyone at People Sport are with Trevor’s family and friends at this very difficult time. May he rest in peace.
