Dooner’s weekend predictions – September 6th



St. Peter’s take on Kilkerrin United while Ballymoe entertain Boyle Celtic in the pick of the action in the Premier Division this weekend. It’s still early days of course but we’ve seen how difficult it is to make up ground in this division in recent seasons so there’s very little margin for error…

At Lecarrow: Colemanstown v Castlerea. 8 pm

Friday Night Football sees the Masters Final at Lecarrow. Castlerea get a slight nod.
