Bet of the weekend

Limerick to beat Dundalk at 13/8

Stephen Kenny's over-performing side were dealt a huge blow over the mid-season break as Keith Ward was ruled out for the rest of the season. The midfielder has played all Dundalk's league games, and has pulled the strings in midfield for the Lilywhites.
