"Foreigners", "Immigrants", "Travellers" or even "Blacks" or "Jews"? 

just a small point hope its not too political. the reason none of the above are in the poll is that the didn't come and try and come here murdering,raping, looting pillaging and claiming to to have a god given right to own the plavce and refuse to leave after 800 years
hope this clears that up

A lot if not most of the mayo posters here are exiles of on form another and i think may  have a different agenda or view point to people working in the club who put forward these motions . after all they finally got their man this year and as regaurd the hurling no one seems to have stood up publicly to defend mr Browne nor does he seem to have complained himself and the league changes bad as though they seem have gone through a lot of debate within the county.
are we letting our righteousness blind us?

not a bit of it from a club cannibalised by the former all ireland club champions though we do cheer them on at this stage as most of the senior team are our players anyway

In fairness combining the two sessions where Mayo footballers and hurlers would train together is a joke and there would be uproar

I dont think this kilty guy will be doing any skills coaching so i dont see it would be that big a deal to combine the too for specialist fitness stuff. A tem with an above average level of fitness/strenght can go a long way despite a lower level of skill look at the clare hurlers or the armagh/dublin footballers.

My other question what cutbacks to the football training woulld Omahony or indeed the fans allow ro help the hurling team. the monet spent has to come from somewhere?

Mayo4sam just because you born on the wrong side of Nephin doesnt mean you can go accusing decent people of being from south mayo.

Thes figures are never disclosed but all involved in hurling know what it amounts to
Whats with all this secrecy in hurling . no one knows who you are here spit it out man.

I reckon though the real reason the hurling people are so beholden to the County board is financial and what ever money is raised within the county is from football. most of the monry they get from croker for hurling is for the promotion of the gsme not for the senior team and would have to be explained back to HQ. and i dont think hq would be impressed if it was all spent on meals training ect for rhe county team

News just ijn that Ciaran McDonald has retired from Inter-County Footbal.......sad day

Does he not retire every Winter?
If Ciaran needs to announce his retirement and it helps him take a complete metal break from football for the winter then thats what he should do. and maybe nallen should as well in his many years playing for mayo i dont ever remember nallen taking a break or even a long term injury. Braks work wonder Heaney improved 50% after his ozzy adventure.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow.

isnt there a long time hogan stand shit stirrer called maradonna

MAYO GAA Board Secretary Seán Feeney has slammed a report in a Sunday newspaper which accused the County Board of sacking Mayo senior hurling manager Frank Browne last week for financial reasons.
Browne was told by the County Board that his services were no longer required at a meeting early last week but Feeney has angrily denied a report in the Irish Daily Star Sunday headlined: ‘Sacked for buying hurleys’.
The report claimed that Browne had been sacked because of expenses that were being accrued from a ‘penny pinching board’. However, Feeney says two reasons outside of money were behind the decision.
“That report was totally inaccurate,” he told The Mayo News. “There are two crucial reasons why Frank Browne isn’t being kept on and they can’t be published. I can definitely state that the issue is not over the costs of hurleys and sliothars as stated in a newspaper.”
However, the Mayo GAA Board Secretary did admit that while not being the decisive reason for Browne’s departure, expenses accrued during the year were a continuous problem.
“We made agreements with Frank during the year concerning the number of training sessions and he exceeded that. At one stage the number of training sessions exceeded the amount the footballers were doing. There is a cost there in terms of expenses and they made no effort whatsoever to curb it. Three lads might come from the one area and they would bring three cars.
“It’ll be there for people to judge themselves when they see the figures at the County Convention and they can make their own minds up on it. Over the course of the year hurling cost the County Board €138,000, most of which was from the senior side.
“People might be saying we are mean and penny pinching but the costs are there and there is the issues with the other two reasons. Frank Browne knows what they are and the hurling fraternity knows what they are,” Feeney added.
Mayo hurling captain Derek Walsh was critical of the move. “We are all shocked by the decision because Frank had already got a lot of plans ready to start training for next year,” he said on Sunday. “2007 will be the most important year for Mayo hurling for a long time because with the way the league is being restructured for 2008, what grade you play at is determined by how well you do in the league this year,” Walsh told Star Sunday.
Feeney, together with County Board Chairman James Waldron and Treasurer JP Lambe, spoke with Frank Browne along with County Hurling Board Chairman Luke Fitzmaurice and Hurling Board Secretary Johnny Hopkins ten days ago.
Fitzmaurice was unwilling to reveal too much of what was said but gave his support to the County Board decision. “I made my own thoughts known at the meeting. I can’t say anymore than that. I’m aware of the two reasons given. I have to stand by the collective decision of the Board,” Fitzmaurice stated.
Both Feeney and Fitzmaurice added that a new appointment was imminent. “I’d be confident that the appointment would be made this week,” said Fitzmaurice. “A person is lined up. I don’t think Frank will be coming back. The new man in usually brings his own men with him.” The prospective candidate is believed to be from within the county.
Seán Feeney was also keen to stress that the Mayo GAA Board are as committed as ever to the game of hurling. “Hurling will not stagnate in Mayo. A lot of money has been spent on coaching, Gerry Spellman was here doing great work, Frank was just here one year... There are plenty of people doing work in the county, people like Adrian Hession, and the lads will get on with it.”
Frank Browne could not be contacted for comment by The Mayo News on Monday.
