Dooner’s weekend predictions – March 23rd


League titles remain up for grabs in all three divisions but the likes of St. Peter’s, Kilkerrin United and Moylough ’79 will be hoping to edge closer to league glory this weekend.


Saturday, March 24th

Herald Premier Division (7.45 pm)

Ballinasloe Town v Ballaghaderreen FC

It was 8-0 to Ballinasloe the last time these sides met. The visitors may have improved since then but The Town should still be comfortable.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town

Moore United v Shiven Rovers

Both sides will be hoping to bounce back from defeats last weekend.

Prediction: Draw

Norio’s Takeaway Division One

Strokestown United v Ballinasloe Town B. 7.45 pm

This should be an entertaining encounter between second and third.

Prediction: Strokestown United

Killeen Sportsgrounds Division Two (7.45 pm)

Castlerea Celtic B v Cloonfad United B

The hosts are slight favourites.

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic B                 

Glen Celtic v Skyvalley Rovers B

Skyvalley have lost 13 out of 16 so far.

Prediction: Glen Celtic

Shiven Rovers B v Boyle Celtic B

The visitors could face an interesting run-in provided they win here.

Prediction: Boyle Celtic B

Sunday, March 25th

RDFL Challenge Cup Round 2

CP Ajax v Lough Harps. 2 pm                 

Lough Harps should prove too strong for CP Ajax.

Herald Premier Division

Ballymoe FC v Castlerea Celtic. 11 am

With just five games left, Castlerea will need a minor miracle to catch St. Peter’s.

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic

Skyvalley Rovers v St. Peter’s FC. 11 am

The Athlone side edge ever closer to the Premier Division title.

Prediction: St. Peter’s FC

Dysart FC v Boyle Celtic. 2 pm                 

Boyle will want to get last weekend’s Connacht Cup defeat out of their system quickly. Prediction: Boyle Celtic

St. John’s Athletic v Cloonfad United. 2 pm

Cloonfad have enjoyed some memorable wins lately but St. John’s will be difficult to beat at home.

Prediction: Draw 

Norio’s Takeaway Division One

Ahascragh United v Kilkerrin United. 2 pm

The league leaders could extend their lead this weekend.

Prediction: Kilkerrin United

Killeen Sportsgrounds Division Two (2 pm)

Moylough ’79 v Rahara Rovers                  

The hosts will be favourites this weekend.
