A gap has developed at the top of the Premier Division and Castlerea Celtic will be hoping to maintain it. The pressure is now on the likes of Boyle Celtic and St. Peter’s to respond.
Meanwhile Moore and Ballymoe will be hoping to gain some ground on the top half. Plenty of goals last weekend and we can expect more of the same this week…
