With the county Gaeltacht championship taking place in Gaoth Dobhair there are only a handful of All-County League games withFour Masters’ visit to St Eunan’s the highlight.
Brian McCormick Sport’s Division One
St. Eunan’s v Four Masters
With Rory Kavanagh and Ross Wherity making up a formidable pairing, Conall Dunne reeling back the years and Conor Gibbons re-discovering his form St Eunan’s have all the appearances of an outfit that could have a big say where 2012 silverware ends up. And not just the Democrat Cup!
Four Masters were depleted last Sunday for their trip to Dunfanaghy and their clash with St Michael’s and paid the price.
Joe Lacey is expected to have a stronger hand on Saturday night but with All-Star Karl Lacey, unlikely to chance his hamstring and Barry Dunnion also back on the treatment table with a hamstring strain Four Masters look likely to have another fruitless journey through the Gap.
Verdict: St. Eunan’s
McGlynn’ Restaurant Division Two
Bundoran v Killybegs
Killybegs are unbeaten five games into the league campaign with their only point dropped in their draw away to Naomh Mhuire. And after a narrow win on the road last Sunday against Naomh Brid, Joe McBrearty and his team are on their travels again this weekend when they play Bundoran, in Gaelic Park. And while a struggling Bundoran in desperate need of points may give McBrearty a few anxious moments Killybegs should make it six out of six.
Naomh Padraig (Muff) v Carndonagh
With league leaders Termon free this weekend Carndonagh will see Saturday evening clash with bottom side Naomh Padraig, in Muff.
But like all local derby clashes this all Inishowen encounter takes on a life of their own and with Aidan McGirr and Naomh Padraig gunning this has all the hallmarks of a close encounter.
Na Rossa v Letterkenny Gaels
Patrick Caulfield and Na Rossa should get their league ambitions back in track when they entertain Letterkenny Gaels in Dooey.
Verdict: Na Rossa
Robert Emmets v Convoy
Dessie McFeely has Robert Emmets really humming this season and are table toppers.
And while Convoy with Thomas McHugh, Emmett McNamee and Anthony Browne showing good form Emmets should bag two more points.
Verdict: Robert Emmets
Naomh Padraig (Lifford) v Naomh Ultan
Naomh Padraig and Naomh Ultan are not living up to their pre-season rating with the Dunkineely men propping up the table in bottom position
Gary McGirr and Lorny Crossan should hit enough scores to see Naomh Padraig make it another disappointing outing for Naomh Ultan.
Verdict: Naomh Padraig
Milford v Moville
After a slow burning start Milford showed the type of form expected of them against Naomh Padraigh, Lifford, in Moyle View Park. And at home again this weekend and if they can repeat that performance Moville may be in for a trying evening.
Naomh Columba v Ardara
Naomh Conaill v St. Michael’s
Verdict: Naomh Conaill
Glenfin v Pettigo
