Castlebar Celtic v Manulla

Saturday, May 14

At 6.30pm, in Celtic Park

Both of these sides are locked together on seven points each after their opening four games, and this tasty local derby is probably the game of the weekend. Celtic are fresh off the back of a storming 5-0 win over Conn Rangers away from home last weekend with Conor Griffin grabbing a hat-trick and Anthony Johnson and Colm Nevin bagging the other two strikes. Manulla also head into the game on the back of a win after a 2-0 victory over Glenhest Rovers in Carramore with Dylan Roche and Anthony Elding the men finding the net. This local derby is normally a tasty encounter and this weekend is expected to another full throated encounter.

Glenhest Rovers v Claremorris

Saturday, May 14

At 6.30pm, in Glenhest

This meeting of two of the bottom three could be a decisive result at the end of the season when it comes to avoiding the drop. Claremorris were on the wrong end of a 7-0 hammering from champions Westport United last weekend at home and this game will offer them a chance of an immediate redemption. For their part Rovers were beaten 2-0 by a 10 man Manulla on the road last weekend and they'll be expecting much better at home against the south Mayo side this time around.

Iorras Aointithe v Ballina Town

Saturday, May 14

At 6.30pm in Carne Nash

The home side picked up their first win of the season last weekend when they came home from Quigley Park with a 2-1 win, thanks to goals from Jason O'Donnell and Ryan Ruddy. That win will be something that the men from Erris will be hoping to build on for the rest of the season, but they face a tough test this weekend when an unbeaten Ballina Town come to Carne Nash for this north Mayo derby. Last weekend Ballina Town made it three wins from three with a 2-0 win over a tricky Ballyglass on at home, Dylan McKee hit the back of the net twice for Ballina Town and they will be favourites to take the points from this encounter.

Ballyglass v Conn Rangers

Sunday, May 15

At 2.30pm in Keaveney Park

The visitors to Keaveney Park are rooted to the bottom of the table with just one point from their four games so far. Last weekend Conn went down 5-0 at home to Castlebar Celtic and it's hard to see them picking up anything from their trip to central Mayo. Ballyglass come into the game also on the back of a defeat, their first of the season after they were beaten 2-0 by Ballina Town, but they will be expected to get back on the winning horse again this weekend at home against the men from Mount Falcon.

Westport United v Ballyheane

Sunday, May 15

At 2.30pm in The Sports Park

The champions certainly looked to have hit their stride last weekend when they put seven past a hapless Claremorris side in round four, in a game Mark McNally found the back of the net five times, with Phil Keegan and Peter Corcoran also adding a goal each. That win keeps United one point in front of Ballina Town in second place, although the north Mayo men do have a game in hand on them at the moment. Ballyheane will be disappointed to have lost out by the odd goal in three against Iorras Aontaithe last weekend, leaving them with one win, one draw and one loss to their names so far this season. Westport United will be expected to take the points from this game, but the 'Hane will make it difficult for them on Sunday
