Club delegates voted to ‘adopt’ a letter that had been sent to the Club Mayo Dublin organising committee by executive officers of the Mayo GAA Board, informing the supporters’ group that “any status they presumed to have” had been “withdrawn with immediate effect”.

Quote
“Unfortunately, the continued presence of Club Mayo Dublin is jeopardising our unique financial plan with Croke Park, including the significant draw-down of funds to complete our works whereby they have insisted that all fund-raising come under the County Committee.

If they are serious about winning Sam Maguire it won’t be achieved by division. It will be achieved by everyone backing the cause.

Quote
We made a decision here tonight, and that is that the clubs are the County Board and the County Board are in charge of Mayo GAA

The new regime has set out its stall. This will set us back decades.

He tweeted about it yesterday saying they do immense work for the Dublin-based players and should be appreciated.
Don't know if his involvement goes any further than that.

Afaik, it's moreso the HQ Finance committee gave certain conditions about their finances and not a general edict for all counties.

Muppet, is this action by the MCB against Club Mayo a consequence of their supposed proposal of Tommy Lyons as a replacement for Johnno - if indeed they proposed him at all in the first place, that is?

It's unbelievable that such a good supporters club is being told to take a hike.

Club Mayo have laid out their side of the story, with a download also available which outlines their views on the situation.

clubmayo had nothing to do with any proposal for the position of manager. It was a malicious rumour designed to undermine the organisation at home.

It is the Mayo County Board who are doing this remember... ::) I can't understand why Club Mayo has to shut up shop because Cairde Mhaigh Eo was launched. Indeed one would think having Cairde Mhaigh Eo and Club Mayo Dublin working TOGETHER would be far better off, but no.

If it's not too personal a question lads, what exactly do Club Mayo contribute towards?

Is it a scheduled payment towards training expenses/gear/gym fees - anything else??

As far as I know they pick up the tab for the players expenses outside the county. That can include the meals and arranging transport to and from training/matches etc. I can't say whether that means costs for all players incurred outside the county or costs incurred for platers based outside the county.

I am not surprised at Aiden O'Sé's reflex tweet expressing surprise at the treatment of clubmayo. Previous manager Johm Maughan actually encouraged Dublin supporters to get together to organize something while John O'Mahony attended a number of events including the launch. The current manager named a founder member of clubmayo as part of his back room team last autumn.

Evidently the team managers had no problems with clubmayo. It also appears that the last CB Executive had no major problem either. As long as the accounts are transparent and there is no question of impropriety, what is the problem?

The article  says that it's not the County Board who came up with the decision but GAA top brass from my reading of it and the county board have had to enforce it

Unfortunately, the continued presence of Club Mayo Dublin is jeopardising our unique financial plan with Croke Park, including the significant draw-down of funds to complete our works whereby they have insisted that all fund-raising come under the County Committee.

That's the spin alright.

I would read more into the following derogatory quotes: "status they presumed to have", "We made a decision here tonight, and that is that the clubs are the County Board and the County Board are in charge of Mayo GAA",
