This weekend sees Castlebar Celtic have a bye in the Continental Tyres Women’s National League. Last Sunday they put their eighth point of the season on the board thanks to a 2-2 draw away to Peamount United. The point sees Celtic remain in fifth place in the table, two points in front of Galway WFC in sixth place, and four ahead of the bottom placed Cork City Women’s FC. While Wexford Youths and UCD Waves are well out in front at the top of the table, Celtic will still be eyeing up the chance to reel in both Raheny United and Peamount United who are currently sitting in the two spots above them in the table over the second half of the season.
In last weekend’s game in Greenogue Celtic went into the lead after 22 minutes when Jess Nolan found the back of the net from a free-kick. However Peamount hit back with Eleanor Ryan Doyle scoring either side of the half to put the hosts into the lead. Adrian Carberry’s team hit back again, and late on Katie Melly found the back of the net four minutes from time to secure the point. After failing to pick up a point in their opening four games, Celtic have gone on a run that has seen them pick up two wins, then two defeats, and more recently two draws. Celtic will wrap up their pre-Christmas schedule with a trip to Cork City Women’s FC on Sunday week, December 14.
