It's a pity they flatly refused any open questions on this subject at the Co board meeting last night. However they are having a meeting with club delegates 'behind closed doors' in the next month.

Any delegate who voted for these idiots should be embarrassed by their behavior.


Were the alternatives of a much higher standard?

A more accurate question may be "How many younger potentially bright and energetic officers are discouraged from running due to the continued BS that is constantly occurring at the County Board level."

However, a statement released to The Mayo News after the meeting 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.”
The Mayo News understands that a vote was also taken among club delegates present on excluding media from all future meetings of the Mayo County Board.
No members of the media were allowed to attend tonight’s meeting."

"Statement from Charlestown Sarsfields GAA:

Following a County Board meeting held last night the 4th of November 2019 in McHale Park, a statement released by the PRO stated that a motion of confidence in the Executive had been passed with the “overwhelming support” of the delegates. We have been contacted by a number of club members in relation to this issue. 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 nights statement. We also cannot condone the exclusion of the media from last nights meeting and the proposal to ban then from all future meetings. "

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.

Why would you allow the media attend board meetings of any organisation?

To avoid confusion around whether votes have actually taken place?

Thats what board members are for.

I look forward to reading all your internal business, financial affairs, discussions about managers and tactics in the local rag.

How could anyone have any confidence in the Mayo Co. Board after reading all those club/county board statements??

Representatives from GAA HQ should be arranging a meeting with the board/chairman for tomorrow (telling not asking it's happening) to go in and review all the accounts for the last few years. Only way to put an end to this car crash from a Mayo perspective.

What do you mean by board members? The executive are saying one thing here but club delegates are saying the opposite.

If it bothers you, maybe don't read local Mayo papers?

Parties dispute meeting minutes all the time. Its not ideal, but thats what secretarial services are for. Inviting the media into executive meetings is not the answer. Which is why nobody does it.

Tongue in cheek comment!? Would be little interest with people if the Mayo County board didn't let things escalate and now drag out.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose
