  • It's reported this morning that the chairman of the Mayo International Supporters' Foundation - the group currently withholding €250,000 in funding  from the Mayo County Board - has written to the county expressing an interest in bidding for the naming rights to MacHale Park.

    The Irish Independent reports that the New York-based businessman Tim O'Leary emailed the county's commercial manager expressing interest in submitting a tender for the package, which also includes being the main sponsor on county jerseys.

    Elverys hold the naming rights until the end of next season and are widely expected to renew their deal, but Mr O'Leary has reportedly asked for a copy of the tender documents along with the bid assessment process for commercial sponsorship and the naming rights to MacHale Park.

    Last month, the Mayo GAA International Supporters Foundation wrote a letter stating that it was withholding funding from the county board "until appropriate governance structures are put in place".

    The contents of the letter were not dealt with at last month's county board meeting, but treasurer Kevin O'Toole told delegates he intended the reply to the allegations made at the October meeting, which takes place next Wednesday.
