Vaughan transfers to Castlebar Mitchels




Mike Finnerty

THE Mayo News can confirm that Mayo footballer Donal Vaughan will be wearing the colours of county senior champions Castlebar Mitchels next season.

Vaughan, who turns 29 today (Friday, December 15) informed Ballinrobe GAA club earlier this week that he wished to transfer from the South Mayo club and join the three-in-a-row Mayo SFC winners.

The transfer paperwork is expected to be processed by Croke Park in the coming days.

Vaughan has been living and working in Castlebar for the last three years.

The Mayo defender played senior club championship football for Ballinrobe for eleven years, and also won both Mayo Minor ‘B’ and Mayo Under-21 ‘B’ championship medals with the club.

Ballinrobe, who were relegated from the senior championship ranks last month and will play Intermediate football for the first time since 2002 next year, are also understood to have ratified their new manager last night.

Donal ‘Mossy’ Costello — who won Mayo Intermediate championship medals in 2000 and 2002 with Ballinrobe — has taken over from Paul Kane who stepped down at the end of last season.
