  • It's been another busy weekend on the Mayo GAA front with more trials taking place for the Mayo Senior team. Below is the latest update:

    James Horan and his management team have over the past few weeks seen players from every club in the county with over 130 players involved in trial games. James Horan said "There are a lot of talented players in the county and we have seen this first hand over the past few weeks. We are looking forward to working with these new players and fusing them with the current players that are in the squad as the hard work now begins for us a group. The management team & players are very much looking forward to 2019 & our first game against Leitrim on Jan 6th

  • All of tomorrow's North Mayo Sweeney Cup fixtures have been postponed due to adverse weather conditions. All of the West Mayo Kelly Cup games are also off, bar Louisburgh v Islandeady, who will wait until tomorrow to see if the game can proceed. 

    The East Mayo Centenary Cup games are also off tomorrow. 

  • It's reported this morning that the chairman of the Mayo International Supporters' Foundation - the group currently withholding €250,000 in funding  from the Mayo County Board - has written to the county expressing an interest in bidding for the naming rights to MacHale Park.

    The Irish Independent reports that the New York-based businessman Tim O'Leary emailed the county's commercial manager expressing interest in submitting a tender for the package, which also includes being the main sponsor on county jerseys.

    Elverys hold the naming rights until the end of next season and are widely expected to renew their deal, but Mr O'Leary has reportedly asked for a copy of the tender documents along with the bid assessment process for commercial sponsorship and the naming rights to MacHale Park.

    Last month, the Mayo GAA International Supporters Foundation wrote a letter stating that it was withholding funding from the county board "until appropriate governance structures are put in place".

    The contents of the letter were not dealt with at last month's county board meeting, but treasurer Kevin O'Toole told delegates he intended the reply to the allegations made at the October meeting, which takes place next Wednesday.

  • Sunday sees one of the most eagerly anticipated Connacht clashes in years as All Ireland finalists Mayo take on National League finalists Galway in a mouth watering encounter in McHale Park, Castlebar. As we build up to our first live championship game of the year this weekend - brought to you by Salamanca Tapas Bar - we'll be bringing you interviews from both camps. First up is Galway's own star forward Damien Comer.

     

  • Check out our interview with two time All Star David Clarke as he looks ahead to one of the biggest games in the Connacht championship in several years. Clarke has been named to start in goal for Stephen Rochford's men and he started off by telling us of the importance of Mayo's fight to stay in Division One after an indifferent league campaign.

  • Stephen Rochford has had an eventful two years at the helm of Mayo football. Two defeats to Galway in 2016 & 2017 have seen his team's written off early each championship season before going on to reach the All Ireland final and lose out narrowly to Dublin in thrillers. Will this year be the year that he finally gets one over on the maroon & white and go on to land a first Connacht title for Mayo since 2015 or will it be third time unlucky for the former Corofin boss? We chatted to him as he gets ready to send his side into battle and you can see that interview now.

     

  • Check out our full interview with Mayo manager Stephen Rochford from Saturday evening as he came to terms with the end of Mayo's summer campaign after a 0-21 to 0-19 defeat to Kildare in St Conleth's Park, Newbridge.

  • A vote of confidence in the Mayo GAA executive and board was “resoundingly passed by all delegates” at last night’s meeting of the Mayo County Board, where media were excluded.

    That’s according to a statement released by the board this morning. However, there were no answers provided in the statement, to the many questions being posed over “governance issues” over recent months by Mayo GAA International Supporters Foundation.

    The brief statement today by the county board reads “In relation to tonight's meeting to respond to clubs we received legal correspondence from Tim O'Leary & Eugene Rooney & based on those letters we have now been advised that we cannot now comment any further on these matters.

    According to today’s Irish Independent , Mayo GAA International Supporters Foundation has raised further questions over how a donation of €150,000 from its millionaire backer was spent by Mayo GAA.

    The donation was made by UK-based options market trader Tim O'Leary, who says there was an agreement the cash was to go towards the preparation of the Mayo senior footballers in 2018.

    But a letter to clubs from the Mayo GAA International Supporters Foundation, which Mr O'Leary chairs, claims receipts provided did not reflect the terms of the agreement.

    The latest letter claims an analysis of receipts produced by the county board showed €37,000 of the expenditure was incurred in advance of the donation being made and that a receipt for only €34,000 was produced in respect of one item said to have cost €54,000.

    The letter also said "a significant portion" of the receipts reflect a period after Mayo exited the championship. The foundation questioned whether the senior team benefited from the full value of the donation. There was no immediate comment from the Mayo county board on the matter.

    The issuing of the letter is the latest twist in a row which has been rumbling for several months. The foundation has withheld €250,000 raised at a New York fundraiser earlier this year, earmarked for an academy and a centre of excellence in Castlebar, until business plans are produced for both projects.Bottom of FormIt has also said the cash will not be handed over "until appropriate governance structures are put in place".

    In the letter, the foundation asked clubs to mandate the county board to seek support from Croke Park for the appointment of an independent mediator.

    To further complicate the dispute, Mr O'Leary was called a "donkey" in an email sent from a Mayo GAA official's email address last August. Last week Mayo county board chairman Mike Connolly insisted there were no governance issues within the county. He also rejected the suggestion Croke Park may be required to intervene.

    In its letter, the foundation said it was clear the relationship between it and the board had completely broken down."We see no point in engaging further with them," it said.

    The letter said that if the county board did not comply with conditions the foundation attached to the funding by the end of the year it would instead engage with clubs in Mayo to establish how the money could be used to further the development of the GAA in the county.

  • Westport GAA launched an ambitious Fundraising Initiative last night.

    “Win a House in Westport” is based on other successful campaigns carried out by Roscommon GAA and Tourmenfeckin GAA in Louth.

    Westport GAA are proposing to sell 10,000 tickets at €100 each for the chance to win a 4 bedroom detached house worth €325,000 in Westport.

    The launch night was held at the Westport GAA club house last night and Danny McLoughlin who is steering the organising committee behind this initiative told me why they have decided to take on this fundraising drive.
