Mayo GAA calls personal abuse “completely unnecessary and unacceptable”

Lee Costello

“It is important that we support each other throughout Mayo GAA.”

Mayo have released what they called an “End of Season Position Statement,” in reaction to some of the crisisim players and staff were facing, following their All-Ireland final loss to Tyrone.

There has also been speculation that coaches Ciaran McDonald and James Burke, will no longer be a part of the coaching staff next season, but they did not address this in their statemenet.

“Constructive criticism forms part of the narrative of our games, however unfortunately over the last few days there has been a number of personal attacks on both players and team management that are completely unnecessary and unacceptable to all involved with Mayo GAA.

“It is only one week since the game, it is important for all involved to take some much-needed downtime, spending time with their family and friends.

“The officers of the board, will in the coming weeks, meet with the management team to review the season gone and plan ahead.

“We understand how much hope and expectation there was for the match last weekend and realise that everyone is extremely disappointed.

“However it is important that we support each other throughout Mayo GAA. We acknowledge that with so many changes to this year’s panel, great progress was made during the season.”
