Carnacon have been removed from the Mayo Senior Club Football Championship, after a number of their players were withdrawn from the Mayo Senior Football panel earlier this summer.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