With two rounds of games left in the top flight the battle to avoid the drop is the big issue still at play - Iorras Aontaithe have already been relegated back down to the Premier Division for next season, having picked up just two wins in their 16 games to date.

The home straight of the Mayo League Super League season is coming into view for the 10 sides in the top division. With five rounds of action left, the defending champions Westport United are sitting top of the table just one point clear of challengers Manulla. On Saturday evening a full round of fixtures is down for decision in the top division.
Last weekend's round of action in the Elverys Sports Super League saw the top division reach the half way point with Manulla still holding on to their lead at the top of the table, they sit two points in front of Westport United, with both Castlebar Celtic and Straide and Foxford United three points further back, making for what looks to be an exciting second half at the top of the table. At the bottom of the table there are three sides separated by just three points, with Achill Rovers, Ballyheane, and Glenhest all battling it out to avoid the drop at this stage, but a run of form from any of those sides could see those placed above the bottom three dragged into the dogfight at the bottom.
League leaders Straide and Foxford United will look to keep their place at the top of the Super League this weekend when they make the trip to Glenhest Rovers. Last weekend, the men from Green Road had a 3-1 win against fellow newly promoted side Achill Rovers at home. United hit their visitors hard in the first half and went in leading 3-0 at the break thanks to goals from Kevin Langdon, Conor Sherry and John Durkan. A Kevin McGinty goal in the second half cut the gap back to two, but the home side were able to hold on for their fourth win of the season.
With the league action in the top division off this weekend, for the most part, bar the refixed clash between Westport United and Ballina Town in Belleek on Saturday night, despite the attempts of Westport to seek a postponement which was refused by the league, the main focus of action moves to the Westaro Cup semifinals where two tasty clashes are coming up.
Westport United maintained their four point cushion at the weekend thanks to a facile 7-1 away win over relegated Straide and Foxford Utd. Both Mark McNally and Jamie Fallon bagged braces along with efforts from Pat Fitzgerald and Dave Cameron and an unfortunate own goal. It was plain sailing for the Covies throughout who had built up a comfortable 5-0 interval advantage.
