The Mayo board held a meeting last Friday night and the following statement was released

“Mayo GAA has examined the issue of the presence of unaccredited backroom team members at last year’s All-Ireland Football Final after it was recently brought to our attention.

“Following a review process, all unaccredited members of the backroom team admitted their mistake, apologised sincerely for their actions and have been suspended for three months.

“These individuals attended the game without the knowledge of the County Boards officers and the team manager.

“Mayo GAA would like to place on record our commitment to the GAA and the government’s Covid guidelines, all of which are in place for the safety and well-being of our players, members and the wider community.”
