Fans who attended yesterday's FBD League clash in Castlebar can attend any of the remaining games in the competition


The FBD Connacht League match due to take place between Mayo and Galway in Castlebar on Sunday was called off after the scheduled throw-in time with the sizeable crowd already in MacHale Park.

A frozen pitch was the reason for the postponement with Connacht GAA then announcing that none of the estimated 2,000 people in the ground would receive refunds for the €10 entrance fee they had paid in, all fans instead receiving a voucher to attend another FBD League match of their choice.

Everybody that was there was given a ticket for any other game they want to go to in the FBD League.

Speaking to Midwest Radio, Connacht GAA chairman John Prenty said that this is a usual policy with postponed matches as it is difficult to give out refunds on the gate.
