Horan has ‘open and frank’ meeting with Mayo GAA Board
MAYO manager James Horan is scheduled to meet again with County Board officers next Wednesday, October 23 following what was described as an ‘open and frank’ meeting last night (Tuesday). But the Ballintubber man looks set to remain in charge for a fourth season.
Mike Connelly, vice-chairman of Mayo GAA Board, told The Mayo News this morning: “We had a very good meeting with James last night. It was open and frank and we spoke mostly about the future.
“Our job as a County Board executive is to make sure that we stay within the guidelines of the new charter that was passed by Central Council at Croke Park last Saturday, and also to make sure that we stay within our budget from an expenditure point of view.”
Connelly was joined at the meeting by Mayo GAA Board chairman Paddy McNicholas, secretary Vincent Neary, treasurer JP Lambe and PRO Aiden McLoughlin.
“James will be dealing with many issues arising from the All-Ireland final, but we’re there to support and help him in any way we can,” added the Hollymount/Carramore clubman.
“We will be meeting with James again next Wednesday to finalise any outstanding issues, and at that stage, James will also be confirming his back-room team for 2014. At that stage we will be signing off on all of that and working towards next year,” said Connelly, who is also the County Board’s liaison officer to the senior squad.
