First Division Round Up | Cork and Galway runaway leaders as Treaty look to find maiden season form

THE Airtricity First Division is nearing it’s mid-season, with that in mind we take a look at the proceedings in the league so far.

The Airtricity First Division is in full swing as it now nears the halfway mark after matchday-15’s most recent round of fixtures.

Cork City have been the runaway side this season as they comfortably sit in first, they are currently the most in form side with five wins in a row. Galway United are currently breathing down their necks in second with just three points in the difference between the two clubs.

After reaching the play-offs in their maiden season, Treaty United have had a up and down first half to the campaign. Recently Treaty have found themselves hard to break down but have failed to convert their chances, that so often claim upset wins last season.

So far this season they have a Win-Draw-Loss record of 4-4-4, an average showing so far but proves the side is quite capable of earning points in this league.
