Mayo GAA

  • Kildare GAA have released the following statement this evening regarding Saturday's Rd 3 Qualifier against Mayo that was provisionally due to be played in Croke Park.

    Kildare GAA would like to explain the chain of events that has led to the
    CCCC announcing Croke Park as the venue for the All-Ireland SFC Round 3
    Qualifier between Kildare and Mayo, and to state that the team will not be
    in attendance, as the game should be taking place at our county grounds, St
    Conleth’s Park.

    It was with great delight that we greeted a home fixture in this morning’s
    draw, a fantastic reward for the loyal supporters who have travelled to
    Owenbeg and Longford for the team’s recent Qualifier successes. It is an
    attractive proposition too for team management, players, sponsors, the
    business people of Newbridge and surrounding areas, and all of the
    stakeholders of Kildare GAA.

    As soon as the draw was made, we were in contact with
    Newbridge Garda Síochána immediately and they were happy with the
    fixture going ahead, their only request being that it throw in at 7pm,
    given the influx of people to the area due to the Irish Derby taking place
    at Curragh Racecourse at 5.15pm.

    Having received the backing of the Gardai, we sent an email to the
    CCCC advising them that we would have no difficulty in hosting the fixture
    as an all-ticket affair and were already putting plans in place to do so.

    We informed the CCCC of the advice surrounding the 7pm throw-in, and
    advised them that the Management Committee of Kildare GAA, on behalf of our
    loyal supporters, respectfully expected that the CCCC would fix the game
    for Saturday, June 30th, at St Conleth’s Park for 7pm and we had no issue with adhering to the criteria for St Conleths Park as previously agreed with the National Facilities/Health & Safety committee

    We were asked to provide an alternative venue, an invitation we declined
    because Kildare are entitled to the home venue as per the draw, and were in the
    position to do so within all criteria of health and safety, and to the
    satisfaction of An Garda Síochána.

    The Management Committee of Kildare GAA has been in constant contact with
    Kildare Senior Football Manager Cian O’Neill. We are all on the same page,
    adamant that the game take place in Newbridge as the draw dictates.

    When notification arrived that the game was fixed for Croke Park, we
    informed the CCC that we would not be fulfilling that fixture, because it
    was a home draw for St Conleth’s Park.

    This decision does not make sense to us, as we have already hosted
    attractive Division 1 fixtures this year.

    There is also the concern as to the implications were Kildare to qualify
    for the so-called Super 8s series. The major selling point of this format
    was that each team would have one major home fixture. Does this now mean
    that we in Kildare would be denied that right, were we to qualify?

    We are not attempting to do anything that contravenes health and safety
    regulations. We can cater for the
    fixture St Conleth’s Park and it will not cause undue congestion in Newbridge.

    As the management committee of Kildare GAA, we have a responsibility to our
    team management, players, supporters, sponsors, businesses and every stakeholder
    in Kildare GAA to insist that we be allowed fulfil the home fixture we are
    entitled to.

    And we are making it clear that we will not play this game in Croke Park.
    St Conleth’s Park is perfectly capable of hosting the tie on an all-ticket
    basis, Newbridge is perfectly capable of dealing with the number of
    supporters that will attend.

    The Management Committee of Kildare GAA.

  • The Brisbane Lions said farewell to teammate Cian Hanley today after the Category B Rookie decided to return to his homeland of Ireland.

    The 21-year-old made the difficult decision to part with the Club after experiencing personal challenges over the past 12 months. Hanley said it was the right decision for him to return home.

     “The club has been unbelievable, I’m very appreciative of what they’ve done over the last while. It’s no fault of theirs I’m going home,” Hanley told lions.com.au.

    “It’s just more me and personal reasons and I just think it’s the right time to go.” 

    Over the past few months, Hanley has had many discussions about his future with family, friends and the Club, working through all possible options to come to the best outcome for him and his family.

    General Manager of Football David Noble said the team will miss Cian's personality and tremendous work ethic. 

    “Cian has been one of our hardest workers over the last three years particularly, overcoming injury and personal adversity with such a professional attitude, it is very sad to see him go home. We will miss his infectious smile, his positive attitude and bubbly contribution to our Club. We wish him a safe trip back home to Ireland where he will reconnect with his family.” Noble said.

    Hanley followed older brother Pearce, a former Lion, to the Club in late 2014 after being selected with the 56th pick in the Rookie Draft.

    His first two seasons were crippled with injuries but in 2017 he played an important part in the NEAFL team’s premiership victory.
