There was a club game in Division 1A of the Mayo league cancelled at 4 hours notice last saturday.
One of the lads posted this on facebook.
"Cancelled a wedding last night to go to the game. Joke"
"Turned down a weekends work in Galway"
"Halfway up from Limerick"
"Sold two tickets for the Connacht game this evening"
Just some of the messages (censored) flying in on Kiltane Gaa Whatsapp page having heard the news that today's Senior League Division 1A game versus Chalrestown was cancelled with only 4 hours notice.
Another one bites the dust. County Board have outdone themselves with this one. Anyone who had plans to travel to Charlestown thIs evening for our Senior League Division 1A match fixed for 5 p.m this evening, well dont as we have just discovered it has been postponed. On Monday last, we were surprised to learn that our final league match with Charleston was due to go ahead today at 5 p.m. We believed all the final league matches usually go ahead at the same time with other matches in the league, to avoid foul-play or handing other teams an advantage, we prepared ourselves for battle in Charlestown. As we are in a precautions position in the league we needed a result to guarantee our Division 1A survival. We were informed at training on Tuesday that Charlestown had approached the County Board and had requested the match off. That was fair enough but Wednesday, Thursday, Friday had passed and no information was forthcoming. To leave it until 4 hours before the game to make a decision or transfer the news to our club is absolute madness. No reason was given as to why the game was cancelled either. Again this is an absolute total lack of respect for club players, managers, officials, and supporters. After a good result in the championship last week, people were talking about and looking forward to this game all week. Now we are left in limbo and do not know when this game will go ahead. On a personal level I'm infuriated and as I booked the weekend off work for the game, I'm heading for the the high stool!!
