What's the deal with Akram? He didn't feature with Ballagh last night. Is he injured or with the Mayo u-20s?

It's like the fella who read about the dangers of drink so he gave up reading
News getting out about poor practices within the county so they ban the news instead of correcting the practices.

You couldn't write it (actually you can't now)

From the mayo news

Quote
MAYO GAA chiefs have denied claims made by clubs today (Tuesday) that a statement released after last night’s County Board meeting in MacHale Park, Castlebar contained inaccuracies regarding a ‘motion of confidence’ in the County Board executive.
Charlestown Sarsfields GAA, Louisburgh GAA, Ballycastle GAA and Ardnaree Sarsfields GAA have all issued statements today (Tuesday) on social media in response to the Board’s claim that: ‘a vote of confidence proposed in the Mayo GAA executive and board at tonight's meeting was resoundingly passed by all delegates’.
All four clubs say that no vote took place on this ‘motion of confidence’ at last night’s meeting of club delegates.
“We have been contacted by a number of club members in relation to this issue,” read the Charlestown GAA statement.
“It is our understanding that a motion was proposed by an honorary county board officer who is not a club delegate and seconded by a delegate, but that no vote was held on this very important motion.
“Our club delegate did not vote on this proposal nor was he given the opportunity and we would ask the County Board Executive to clarify last night’s statement.”
However, in response to a number of questions put to County Board officials by The Mayo News this afternoon, Mayo GAA have issued a statement to clarify their position in relation to the ‘motion of confidence’ issue.
“After a lengthy discussion among delegates on how to move forward for the betterment of Mayo GAA, a number of speakers called for support for the Executive to deal with the matter,” reads the statement.
“A motion for a vote of confidence in the Executive was proposed and it was seconded by a number of individuals. There were no objections raised by any club delegate to this motion. As nobody present objected to the motion in any way the motion was taken as passed by all delegates without a vote been required.”
A proposal to ban members of the media from attending any future County Board meetings — with the exception of the County Convention — was also passed on Monday night after a show of hands by the club delegates.
Three of the clubs said they disagreed with this motion being passed in their social media statements — Louisburgh, Charlestown Sarsfields and Ardnaree Sarsfields.
However, today’s statement from Mayo GAA said this proposal was seconded and passed ‘overwhelmingly’ by club representatives.
“There was a motion proposed by members present at the meeting to exclude media from future County Board meetings, a lengthy discussion took place on this topic,” said Mayo GAA in their statement.
“As there were delegates for and against this proposal it was then voted on and was overwhelmingly carried.”

Foundation dispute not discussed
THE meeting of the Mayo GAA County Board that took place in MacHale Park, Castlebar last Monday night did not discuss any matters relating to the recent dispute between Mayo GAA and the Mayo GAA International Supporters’ Foundation.
It had been expected that a range of issues raised in recent correspondence by Mr Tim O’Leary, chairman of Foundation, would be addressed by Mayo GAA officials and club delegates after county chairman Mike Connelly vowed to hold a ‘real heart-to-heart’ meeting last week.
However, a statement prepared by the Executive after the meeting and released by County Board spokesperson, Paul Cunnane, said: “In relation to tonight's meeting to respond to clubs, we received legal correspondence from Tim O'Leary and Eugene Rooney, and based on those letters we have now been advised that we cannot now comment any further on these matters.”
The statement also said that: “There was a vote of confidence proposed in the Mayo GAA executive and board at tonight's meeting which was resoundingly passed by all delegates.”
Chairman Mike Connelly declined to comment after the meeting.
Hasta la victoria siempre

They've sent emails to clubs to stop using social media against them. You couldn't make this up. WillieJoe's blog is no better disallowing any comment on the matter.

This sounds like the Ballymagash county council except it is actually the county board of a county that is in the top four in the country, and is one that also has a very very generous list of donors who are not stupid.
Unreal !

Bedad,it's getting curiouser and curiouser...

New questions raised over how millionaire Mayo GAA backer's €150,000 donation was spent
A supporters' group has raised further questions over how a donation of €150,000 from a millionaire backer was spent by Mayo GAA.

The donation was made by UK-based options market trader Tim O'Leary, who says there was an agreement the cash was to go towards the preparation of the Mayo senior footballers in 2018.

But a letter to clubs from the Mayo GAA International Supporters Foundation, which Mr O'Leary chairs, claims receipts provided did not reflect the terms of the agreement.

It claims an analysis of receipts produced by the county board showed €37,000 of the expenditure was incurred in advance of the donation being made and that a receipt for only €34,000 was produced in respect of one item said to have cost €54,000.

The letter also said "a significant portion" of the receipts reflect a period after Mayo exited the championship.

The foundation questioned whether the senior team benefited from the full value of the donation. There was no immediate comment from the Mayo county board on the matter.

The issuing of the letter is the latest twist in a row which has been rumbling for several months.

The foundation has withheld €250,000 raised at a New York fundraiser earlier this year, earmarked for an academy and a centre of excellence, until business plans are produced for both projects.
It has also said the cash will not be handed over "until appropriate governance structures are put in place".

In the letter, the foundation asked clubs to mandate the county board to seek support from Croke Park for the appointment of an independent mediator.

A behind-closed-doors meeting of the board and its delegates took place last night where issues raised by the foundation were due to be discussed. However, it is understood matters raised by foundation were not discussed as a result of legal advice received by the county board after a solicitor's letter was received from Mr O'Leary.

To further complicate the dispute, Mr O'Leary was called a "donkey" in an email sent from a Mayo GAA official's email address last August.

Last week Mayo county board chairman Mike Connolly insisted there were no governance issues within the county. He also rejected the suggestion Croke Park may be required to intervene.

In its letter, the foundation said it was clear the relationship between it and the board had completely broken down.

"We see no point in engaging further with them," it said.

The letter said that if the county board did not comply with conditions the foundation attached to the funding by the end of the year it would instead engage with clubs in Mayo to establish how the money could be used to further the development of the GAA in the county.
