Mayo ladies football manager Peter Leahy is planning for the new season without all of the 12 players who left the county panel last summer, and has called for his team to be given time to develop.

Eight players from county champions Carnacon as well as four other players and two mentors left the Mayo squad ten days before their All-Ireland quarter final clash with Cavan in June.

The controversy contined over the Summer and eventually led to the Mayo County Board attempting to throw Carnacon out of the club championship - that ban was later overturned, and the club went on to claim their 19th county title in a row.

As a result of the falling out, the 12 players who left the county panel will not form part of Peter Leahy’s inter-county panel in 2019, as he starts his preparation for the national league, which begins against Tipperary on Sunday 3 February.
