Due to legal restraints, those who attended last night’s Mayo County Board meeting were told, in a prepared statement, that it could not respond to issues that have been raised by the Mayo Supporters Foundation.
No questions were allowed by delegates to the prepared statement, on the grounds that the County Board had taken legal advice on the emails received from the Mayo Supporters Foundation.
The board met last night to discuss recently highlighted governance issues between it and the foundation, which resulted in the foundation withholding a quarter of a million euro raised for Mayo GAA at a function in New York last May.
The county board will meet again on Monday night next at 7.30 to discuss the matter further, however, the media will not be permitted to attend.
John Melvin of the Connaught Telegraph told Midwest News this morning that “the whole saga has gone into extra time”.
