Carnacon GAA

  • Midwest Sport understands that Carnacon’s appeal against their removal from the Mayo Club Championship and League will be heard by Connacht LGFA on Thursday evening next.

    A vote was taken at a Mayo Ladies County Board meeting on Tuesday night which will remove Carnacon from the championship. They have the usual right of appeal on that vote.

    The club has been sanctioned under Rule 288.

    12 players and 2 selectors left the Mayo Senior Panel prior to the clash with Cavan, eight of those were from the Carnacon club. The players cited welfare issues and personal reasons for withdrawing from the panel.

    The decision means that Carnacon will not be able to defend their county, provincial and All-Ireland championships this year, if an appeal is not successful.

  • Statement from Carnacon Ladies Gaelic Football Club as of 22nd August in response to the decision of Mayo LGFA to remove our Senior team from league and championship football for the 2018 season.

    Understandably, the entire panel, management, club officers, our families and supporters are devastated by the sequence of events which have transpired.

    The Club is in the process of preparing an appeal of this decision to lodge with the Connacht LGFA, so at this point in time we feel it would be inappropriate to comment any further.

    We hope you can understand our position and respect our decision.

    At the end of the day - all our members want is to play football and we hope to get this opportunity again in the not too distant future.

    We would like to thank the general public for their support and goodwill in this unprecedented situation.

     

     

     

  • Carnacon Ladies GAA will receive special recognition this evening for their recent exploits.

    Mayo county council are hosting a civic reception for the six-times all Ireland senior ladies champions this evening at Lough Lannagh in recognition of their achievements.

  • Carnacon have been removed from the Mayo Senior Club Football Championship, after a number of their players were withdrawn from the Mayo Senior Football panel earlier this summer.

    Midwest Sport understands a vote was taken at a Mayo Ladies County Board meeting last night which will remove Carnacon from the championship. They have the usual right of appeal on that vote.

    Midwest Sport understands that the club has been sanctioned under Rule 288, which looks at the club as opposed to the players individually, as the Carnacon club stated that they would be withdrawing their players last month.

    12 players and 2 selectors left the Mayo Senior Panel prior to the clash with Cavan, eight of those were from the Carnacon club. The players cited welfare issues and personal reasons for withdrawing from the panel.

    The decision means that Carnacon will not be able to defend their county, provincial and All-Ireland championships this year, if an appeal is not successful.

    Midwest Sport has contacted the Mayo Ladies County Board and Carnacon for comment on the matter. Mayo County Board is due to revert with official statement on the matter.

    While a spokesperson for Carnacon told Midwest Sport that they have no comment to make, other than they will be appealing the decision of Mayo LGFA to a higher body within the next few days.

     

  • The eight Carnacon players who left the Mayo panel have had their suspensions reduced to two weeks after an appeal to the National Appeals Committee last night according to the 42.ie.

    The players – Cora Staunton, Fiona McHale, Martha Carter, Marie Corbett, Amy Dowling, Doireann Hughes, Sadhbh Larkin and Saoirse Walsh – were still found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute but their four-week bans were halved.

    At an appeal hearing in Tullamore last night, Carnacon also withdrew their appeal of the €500 fine that was handed out 10 days ago.

    The All-Ireland club champions now have five days if they wish to lodge an appeal with the LGFA Central Council in the hope of further reducing the suspensions.

    But with the Mayo ladies senior football championship due to resume this weekend, the upcoming round of fixtures will go ahead as scheduled — without the eight suspended players — unless Carnacon’s appeal is lodged by 5pm this evening.
