  • Ballyvary Hurling Club has issued a statement on Twitter appealing to Mayo County Board to reverse their decision to exclude them from the list of clubs to benefit from JP McManus’ donation.

    Mayo County Board, like others around the country, will receive €100,000 of the donation from Mr McManus.

    Last night on Twitter Ballyvary Hurling Club said they were deeply disappointed to learn that they will receive no allocation from the money and said they understood it was to be divided equally among all clubs in the county.

    They have called on the County Board to reverse their decision.

    Meanwhile Caiseal Gaels has this morning issued a statement saying they share Ballyvary's disappointment in not receiving any money from the fund. They say they believe the money was given for the development of clubs in the county, so being one of two clubs who were left out when funding was allocated in Mayo is very disheartening as we strive to promote GAA activity in Mayo. They say they echo Ballyvary's call for Mayo County Board to reconsider this allocation. 

  • Dublin legend Bernard Brogan says he's "baffled" by the opposition to potentially playing the GAA championship behind closed doors.

    The status of the 2020 season remains unclear, but it seems almost certain games would have to be played without spectators if it does go ahead.

    The former Footballer of the Year tweeted to say he would "take your hand off" to be able to represent Dublin again, whether or not spectators were present.

  • The Brisbane Lions said farewell to teammate Cian Hanley today after the Category B Rookie decided to return to his homeland of Ireland.

    The 21-year-old made the difficult decision to part with the Club after experiencing personal challenges over the past 12 months. Hanley said it was the right decision for him to return home.

     “The club has been unbelievable, I’m very appreciative of what they’ve done over the last while. It’s no fault of theirs I’m going home,” Hanley told lions.com.au.

    “It’s just more me and personal reasons and I just think it’s the right time to go.” 

    Over the past few months, Hanley has had many discussions about his future with family, friends and the Club, working through all possible options to come to the best outcome for him and his family.

    General Manager of Football David Noble said the team will miss Cian's personality and tremendous work ethic. 

    “Cian has been one of our hardest workers over the last three years particularly, overcoming injury and personal adversity with such a professional attitude, it is very sad to see him go home. We will miss his infectious smile, his positive attitude and bubbly contribution to our Club. We wish him a safe trip back home to Ireland where he will reconnect with his family.” Noble said.

    Hanley followed older brother Pearce, a former Lion, to the Club in late 2014 after being selected with the 56th pick in the Rookie Draft.

    His first two seasons were crippled with injuries but in 2017 he played an important part in the NEAFL team’s premiership victory.

  • Donegal football manager Declan Bonner's called on the GAA to issue a provisional date for a return to action.

    The leagues have been suspended and the championships put on hold as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Bonner's told the Donegal Democrat he can't see football being played before July.

  • Carnacon ladies footballer Fiona McHale has been appointed as coach to the Claremorris Senior Football team.

    Following a meeting of the executive of Claremorris GAA Club last night, it was confirmed that Fiona will join Norman O’Brien as coach, while Niall Heffernan has been appointed manager.

     

     

     

  • Carnacon have been removed from the Mayo Senior Club Football Championship, after a number of their players were withdrawn from the Mayo Senior Football panel earlier this summer.

    Midwest Sport understands a vote was taken at a Mayo Ladies County Board meeting last night which will remove Carnacon from the championship. They have the usual right of appeal on that vote.

    Midwest Sport understands that the club has been sanctioned under Rule 288, which looks at the club as opposed to the players individually, as the Carnacon club stated that they would be withdrawing their players last month.

    12 players and 2 selectors left the Mayo Senior Panel prior to the clash with Cavan, eight of those were from the Carnacon club. The players cited welfare issues and personal reasons for withdrawing from the panel.

    The decision means that Carnacon will not be able to defend their county, provincial and All-Ireland championships this year, if an appeal is not successful.

    Midwest Sport has contacted the Mayo Ladies County Board and Carnacon for comment on the matter. Mayo County Board is due to revert with official statement on the matter.

    While a spokesperson for Carnacon told Midwest Sport that they have no comment to make, other than they will be appealing the decision of Mayo LGFA to a higher body within the next few days.
