  • Mayo County Board has confirmed to Midwest Sport that a meeting of the Executive is due to take place this evening. It is understood the meeting is being held to discuss and rubber stamp Stephen Rochford's management team for the new season. 

    It is reported that former Galway and Sligo manager Peter Forde and Shane Conway will link up with the team, alongside Stephen Rochford and Joe Keane. 

    It is expected the final lineup will be put before a full county board meeting in the coming days. 

     

  • The Mayo County Board have expressed their disappointment at the fixing of Saturday week’s football qualifier game in Newry for 7pm.

    It was confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that the game would be staged at 7pm, much to the surprise and disappointment of many Mayo supporters.

    The Mayo County Board PRO Paul Cunnane told Midwest Sport today that they had emailed the CCCC (Central Competitions Control Committee) on Monday to ask that the game be fixed for an earlier time, given the distance supporters will have to travel to Newry from Mayo.

    He said they were then very disappointed to see that the game had been fixed for 7pm, when the fixtures were confirmed on Tuesday.

    Paul Cunnane told Midwest Sport today that the board is very conscious of supporters’ concerns about the travel time.

     

    Meanwhile Secretary of Connacht GAA John Prenty is a member of the fixture making committee.

    He told Midwest Sport yesterday there are a number of factors that had to be considered ahead of deciding on the throw in time.

    Down are involved in the Christy Ring Cup Final which is fixed for Croke Park at 2pm on that Saturday. The hurling fixtures, which include the Nicky Rackard Cup Final and Lory Meagher Cup Final, had to take into account counties that are involved in both the football and hurling – like Armagh, Sligo and Leitrim, as well as Down.

    Sunday was also an issue because the Ulster Football Final is on in Clones, with the Down U20s involved in the curtain raiser there.

    The PSNI also had to be consulted about the throw in time and advised the CCCC that an earlier throw in time, such as 5 or 6pm would lead to too much traffic congestion in Newry on a Saturday evening.
