It's reported that Mayo GAA is introducing a series of financial reforms, after months of controversy over governance issues.

According to the Irish Independent, the Mayo county board is also seeking to enter mediation with millionaire Tim O'Leary, who issued High Court proceedings in December seeking the return of a €150,000 donation.

Mr O'Leary wants the money returned due to concerns over how it was spent.

A foundation he chairs is also continuing to withhold €250,000 raised for GAA projects in the county until appropriate governance structures are put in place.

Details of the reforms were outlined at a meeting of the county board on Monday, where a financial report was given by new treasurer Valerie Murphy.

Among the reforms being introduced is a purchase order system, where nothing can be bought without having a PO number.

The board is also in the process of trying to get set up on Croke Park's accounting system.

The meeting heard the board wanted to resolve outstanding issues with Mr O'Leary and would make a full statement once mediation has been completed.
