  • Roscommon GAA has issued a statement regarding the venue for the Connacht final.

    It follows last weekend’s statement by the Roscommon manager Kevin McStay who appeared to be standing firm in his side's bid to play the Connacht Football Final at Dr Hyde Park.

    The game is due to be played there as per the rota system in Connacht, but there's been suggestions the fixture could be moved to McHale Park due to capacity and safety issues.

    Speaking after his side's semi-final win over Leitrim onSaturday , McStay said his team will line-out at Hyde Park, and hopes whoever their opponents are will join them.

    This morning's statement issued by the PRO of Roscommon GAA reads

    Everyone involved in Roscommon G.A.A. was absolutely delighted last Saturday evening when we qualified for our 3rd Connacht final in a row by defeating Leitrim. Roscommon GAA are looking forward to taking on Galway or Sligo on Sunday the 17th of June in the final.

    Roscommon GAA fully accept the venue of the Connacht final will be decided by the Connacht CCC and this will be done when the winner of the Galway v Sligo game is known.

    Brian Carroll Roscommon County Secretary stated “I held a very constructive meeting with Connacht GAA Secretary John Prenty this week about the suitability of Dr Hyde Park for the hosting of Connacht Championship games in the future and also a potential Connacht final and another meeting is planned for this weekend”. 

  • Roscommon GAA are still hoping their postponed trip to London could be rescheduled if the Covid-19 crisis abates in time.

     

    The Connacht SFC quarter-final, originally fixed for Saturday, May 2, was officially called off yesterday.

     

    The Irish Independent reports that Connacht Council has clarified the fixture is "postponed" and not completely cancelled as was first thought.

     

    Connacht secretary John Prenty says that the Connacht Council is monitoring the situation.

     

    He admits they don't know what's in store for any competition at club or inter-county level at this point in time.

     

    The only decisions taken to the Connacht SFC are the cancellation of the trip of Galway to New York and the postponement of Roscommon’s journey to London.

     

    Roscommon PRO Hugh Lynn expressed a belief that, whenever sport gets back on track, "the game will be re-fixed.”

     

    The postponement complicates things for their fundraising team in Club Rossie, which was planning to stage its 'Win a Home in London' draw on the second weekend in May and it may need to be deferred.

  • At a meeting of the Roscommon GAA County Committee on Monday, last Roscommon GAA appointed a subcommittee to carry out the recruitment of a new senior team manager to replace Kevin McStay who retired recently.

    The committee is made up of the County Chairman Seamus Sweeney, Co. Secretary Brian Carroll, Co. Treasurer David O Connor, former Senior Football Captain Niall Carty, and former Co. footballer Ciarán Heneghan. In addition, the committee has the option to add an additional member if required.

    Clubs that wish to nominate somebody for the position of Senior Football Team Manager have until 5 pm on Friday the 14th of September 2018 to do so. The subcommittee was also given the authority to approach any suitable candidates themselves.

    Roscommon GAA hopes to have the appointment made in a timely fashion to ensure the new manager has plenty of time to prepare for the 2019 football season and the return to Division One Football.

  • The work of the Fixtures Review Task Force looks set to face another hurdle before it can be enacted after Roscommon County Board passed a motion calling on the GAA’s top brass to put it’s proposals to the clubs of the country.

    The motion calls on Croke Park to allow the clubs to see the taskforce’s recommendations and make a decision on how to mandate their Central Council delegates before a final decision is made.

    The Irish Independent is reporting that the motion was brought by the Kilmore club and Club Players Association member Tommie Kenoy.

    He played a key role in the change to Rule 42, which paved the way for other sports to be played at Croke Park.

    Kenoy’s proposal, which will be sent to director General Tom Ryan’s office, suggests “that the recommendations of the Fixtures Review Task Force are issued to all county boards by the director general for consideration by the clubs in advance of being brought before Central Council.
