With all catch-up games now played it’s a straight run to the end of the league with five fixtures scheduled for this Sunday, five for Sunday Aug 25th and the final quintet on Saturday August 31st.

Milford V Bundoran 15:00, Ref: TBC
Cloughaneely V St Michael’s 15:00, Ref: Marc Brown

With Kilcar having already tied up the title, the focus is on the battle to avoid relegation. Milford, the team in most trouble, host Realt na Mara who have being struggling badly with both their form and mounting injuries. A loss for the hosts in Moyle Park would probably seal their faith, while a home win would leave the Bundoran side very vulnerable, particularly if Sean MacCumhaills win. The twin town side welcome Eunans and a home win would be an important step if they are to avoid the drop, keeping survival in their own hands as they play Realt na Mara in their final game. The other key fixture is in Falcarragh where Cloughaneely host St Michaels. A win for the hosts would almost guarantee them Division 1 football next year but they face a St Michael’s side who have found a good vein of form, as have Cloich Cheann Fhaola, but are in greater need of two league points to pull themselves clear of the drop zone.
