Mayo GAA clubs have been told they must pay their club levies despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and restrictions.

Clubs were notified on Sunday evening by the Secretary of Mayo GAA Dermot Butler, who said the move comes following a Directive from Croke Park.

The County Board suspended levies for the months of March and April to alleviate pressures facing clubs during the pandemic.

In a letter seen by Midwest Sport Mayo GAA explain that levies due directly to Croke Park will be collected, including property insurance, public liability cover and the €2 membership fee to Croke Park.

Levies for Mayo GAA competitions that have already been completed will also be collected including Mayo GAA Scór and Schools competitions.

However, all Mayo GAA levies relating to competitions that have been unable to begin due to COVID19 will be suspended until further notice.

It is proposed that the revised levies will be spread over May, June and July, preferably by way of the existing direct debit option and clubs who are not using direct debit options are encouraged to do so.

A new web-page will also be created on containing a link to each club's online lotto details.

The Club Development Draw will take place later in the year with 2 draws in September, October and November, allowing a longer lead time for clubs and tickets will be distributed to clubs within a week.
