Mayo GAA, in association with the local media, have named their 2023 Club All-Star panel to play the Mayo senior football team on December 30th at the Garrymore GAA grounds.
The players all starred for their clubs during the Mayo GAA Connacht Gold Senior, Egan Jewellers Intermediate and TF Royal Hotel & Theatre Junior championships this year.
The charity match is in aid of the Mayo branch of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Sixteen different club players featured on the Mayo GAA ‘Team of the Week’ more than once during the season with Breaffy’s Aidan O’Shea, Ballinrobe’s Kevin Quinn and Ballina Stephenites Sam Callinan featuring on three different teams.
The final panel features players from all the Mayo GAA county championship winning sides with Ballina Stephenities having three players selected, (Evan Regan, Sam Callinan & Luke Feeney) Kilmeena GAA have four players on the panel (Darragh Keaveny, Jack Carney, Caolach Halligan and Stephen Staunton) with Mark Noone from Lahardane MacHales also making the cut.
The management for the All-Star team on the day will be Niall Heffernan Ballina Stephenites, John Reilly Kilmeena GAA and Eddie Conroy Lahardane MacHales
Lillian McGovern, Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association CEO thanked Mayo GAA for their support saying they depend heavily on donations and fundraising efforts like this one:
“We are a small organisation with 85% of our income coming from donations and fundraising.
"A huge thank you to all the players from the Mayo senior team and club championship for agreeing to take part in this charity match.
"It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser and I’m hopeful that there will be a great turnout from the local community,” commented Lillian McGovern."
The Club All-Stars will get commemorative Mayo GAA jerseys and togs for the Charity Match with the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association logo on them. The club players will all wear their own club socks on the day.
The charity game will also be streamed LIVE on www.mayogaatv.com.
