As the inter county season ended last month we now enter the club season and preparations have already begun for the new inter county season next year. Big news came out of Mayo GAA this week with the news that one of Kevin McStay’s selectors Liam McHale has left the Mayo camp for the 2024 season.
“It is difficult,”
“There were five of us there and the four lads had a totally different philosophy on how this team should play than what I had.
“I was surprised at Kevin because normally we would be in sync. I just felt there is no point in me being there when I am so far removed from their thinking.
“I didn’t want to drag anybody down. I didn’t want to upset the flow of the whole thing. I thought it was the right thing to do.
“All we want to see as Mayo people is the likes of Aidan O’Shea, Cillian O’Connor lifting that Sam Maguire over their heads. That would be something.”
McHale added that he “really enjoyed getting to know” the current group of Mayo players.
