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.
With Ballina Town in action in the Connacht Junior Cup against Galway Bohs there was only four games down for decision on the opening weekend.

Ciaran Kelly and his Castlebar Celtic side travelled to North Mayo on Saturday evening and they gained a share of the spoils in a real humdinger. Anthony Johnston, Ioseph O’Reilly and Jamie Ivers opened their league accounts for the Hoops, whilst Jason Boylan, Tom Ivan and Jamie Flannery were on target for Iorrais in a 3-3 draw.
Manulla and Kiltimagh/Knock United kept the pressure on Westport United at the top of the league with wins but the Covies continued their drive towards the title in an entertaining game against Snugboro.
