Mayo boss: the latest

Mayo boss: the latest


THERE will be no announcement on the new Mayo senior football manager until after next Sunday’s County SFC Final replay according to John O’Mahony.
Speaking exclusively to The Mayo News last night, the Ballaghaderreen native admitted Sunday’s drawn County Final had disrupted his plans to speak with Mayo GAA Board officials.
“Sunday’s events put a new schedule on things,” he conceded. “We’ll be talking this week from a point of view of moving it on but there’ll be nothing said until after the County final.
“The logistics of meetings and trainings this week with Ballaghaderreen and other meetings mean I will be busy but we will be talking this week. But we will not be taking it forward in the full glare of publicity. When there is news to know, people will know. Whatever it is, whether I am taking the job or not. There is no point in trying to speculate, people should just hold off,” he said.
