Yeah the Mayo team are going to Miami for two weeks I think on the 1st January, thats why our fixturees are pushed back. They're supposed to meeting up with Donie Bukley out there.

So no to the GAA diaspora in NYC but yes to a Tanned One-style training camp in Party Town USA.  :-X

Interesting that all of sligos games are in the home county.
Good chance to test for new talent as we need to shake things up. We desperately need a midfielder- are you listening Adrian?
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.

Two week trip to Miami with upwards of 30 traveling will cost alot of money how can you afford this when you have huge debts to pay off? The best team holiday we could afford was a weekend away to Donegal.

I'd say 2pm & the Mayo v GMIT will be a evening throw in.

I'll still continue my 'boycott' of the competition until there's a game played in a North Mayo venue.  ;)

Do they change the groups around each year?
