Mayo GAA has apologised to the chairman of the Mayo GAA International Supporters Foundation Tim O'Leary over the choice of songs played as part of the half-time entertainment in last Saturday's match between a county team selection and the Underdogs, in Elverys MacHale Park, Castlebar.

Among the songs played were "Money, Money, Money" and "Shoe the Donkey".

According to the Irish Independent, the letter of apology from Mayo GAA states that it was "a light-hearted take on recent events" after a county board officer allegedly referred to Mr O'Leary as "a donkey" in an earlier email.

Mr O'Leary reportedly said he's happy to accept the apology and move on.

The international supporters foundation is withholding €250,000 which was raised at a gala dinner in new York last May, because business plans for the Centre of Excellence and academy have not been provided in accordance with a letter that outlined an agreement with county board chairman Mike Connelly in April.

The relationships between the foundation and the county board has since deteriorated, and attention now turns to tonight's meeting of the county board in Castlebar, where officials have promised to respond  in detail to letters from Tim O'Leary and the foundation.
