Castlebar Celtic claimed the Elverys Sports Super League title in style last Saturday evening with a 7-1 thrashing of Iorras Aontaithe in Celtic Park. It was really only a matter of time when Celtic clinched the title, but thanks to Westport United’s 2-1 win over then second placed Claremorris, Declan Kilkelly’s men were able to start their celebrations early with one round of games still left in the league. Westport’s win put them into second place in the table and two points clear of Ballina Town ahead of this week’s final round of games. The situation at the bottom of the table has been sorted out for a couple of weeks now with both Ballinrobe Town and Swinford making the drop back to the Premier A league next season.
With just two games to go in this year’s Elverys Super League, Castlebar Celtic will edge ever closer to regaining the title with a win over Iorras Aontaithe in Celtic Park on Saturday evening.

Celtic also have a far superior goal difference to their south Mayo rivals with +21 in the bank as opposed to +11 for Michael Hutton’s team.

The Elverys Sports Super League will enter its final four game stretch this weekend with Castlebar Celtic looking to stay the course to the title over the last handful of games. Declan Kilkelly’s side are currently five points in front of second placed Claremorris, they kept the gap open thanks to coming out on the right side of an odd goal in seven encounter with bottom of the table Ballinrobe Town last weekend in Celtic Park. Celtic raced into a two goal lead early on only to be hit for three in a row by Ballinrobe, before goals from Stevie Gavin and Ger O’Boyle saw them win through at the end. On Sunday, Celtic will make the short hop to the Sportspark to take on Westport United at 2.30pm.
Following on from Glenhest Rovers win in the McDonnell Cup final last weekend and round of action in the Super League which saw Castlebar Celtic keep staking their claim for the title, it is back to cup action for most of the sides in the Mayo League this weekend.
Saturday evening in Milebush it will be a kind of home away from home for Newport Town when they take on Ballyheane B in the final of the McHale Agri Stores Cup Final. While to most the boys from Ballyheane would be much closer neighbours to Milebush Park the home of the Mayo League. But since they reformed and came back into the league this season, Newport Town have been using Omnigrass in Milebush for their home games in League Three of the Mayo League and they are currently sitting in third place in the table one point and one place behind Sunday’s cup final opponents and both sides are scheduled to meet again next weekend in the league back on the Omnigrass. This Saturday’s game will however be on the main pitch in Milebush, and Newport Town will be hoping that they fare a little bit better at least than last weekend when Ballyheane’s A team put ten past them in he Connacht Gold cup.
Defending champions Colga FC have progressed to the last eight in this year’s WFAI U-16 Irish Cup after defeating Castlebar Town 2-0 in Kilcornan on Saturday.
Ballina Town manager Alan Gough always had a difficult task this season, taking over from Brendan Kenny who had just taken the side to back to back Super League titles. But Gough has managed to steer his side, which is in a transition period, to second place in the table - within striking distance of Castlebar Celtic, with half of the season left. Last weekend Gough faced a tough task in bringing his side to Swinford, the team he guided to safety last season in a year when four teams were relegated.
The majority of the divisions in the Mayo League will reach the midway point this weekend with the seventh round of games taking place across all divisions over Saturday and Sunday.
