Dooner’s weekend predictions – March 1st



Castlerea Celtic took a major scalp last weekend with their 3-2 win away to Boyle. They’ll be hoping to continue that kind of form when they host neighbours Ballymoe in the Challenge Cup this weekend.

  Elsewhere in the cup, Ballinasloe Town will welcome Cam Celtic on Saturday while Boyle Celtic travel to Cloonfad United and Moylough ’79 welcome Premier Division champions St. Peter’s.
