There were two catch-up games played in Brian McCormack Division 1 of the All County League this weekend. Na Cealla Beaga’s home victory over Realt na Mara gives them a fighting chance of emerging from the relegation zone but it requires winning their remaining two games and hoping results elsewhere go their way. Realt na Mara, even if they win their three remaining fixtures are doomed to the play-offs along with Glenswilly.

Eamonn Byrne Memorial Park Na Cealla Beaga 4-15 Realt na Mara 3-12 Marc Brown

Machaire Gathlán, Gaoth Dobhair 2-13 Cloich Cheann Fhaola 2-7, Seamus McGonagle

Cloich Cheann Fhaola’s defeat in Machaire Gathlán means they are still not safe but remain in a much better position to miss the relegation playoffs than either Ardara or Killybegs. These two meet next weekend and Killybegs must win to have a chance of staying out of the playoffs.
