Mayo management reviews are held

Sport

MEANWHILE, the County Secretary also told The Mayo News some very productive management reviews had taken place over the past week with management teams from the senior hurlers and the Under-20 and Under-17 football squads sitting down with the county board officers on Wednesday last.
James Horan and Ciaran McDonald from the senior management met with them on Friday.
“These were really productive,” said Dermot Butler. “There was honest two-way communication and I think everyone has taken learnings from the past year. A number of clubs sent in questions for the various managers and these were discussed in a frank manner. “We’ve all agreed to reconvene in a few weeks time to continue preparations for the coming season.”
Butler said that all managements teams were very positive about the future, and said he was particularly taken with the positivity and ideas expressed by Ciaran McDonald during the senior team’s review.
“I’ve know Ciaran since he was a young fella and he blew us all away at the meeting. His thoughts and ideas were on a different level and any county in Ireland would be delighted to have a man like that involved.”
The only outstanding matter to be dealt with is the senior hurling manager’s post where Derek Walsh has come to the end of his current tenure in the job.
However, the Ballyhaunis man is believed to be likely to re-apply for the position in the coming days.
“There’s nothing sinister in it at all,” the secretary explained, in relation to last week’s announcement that Mayo GAA were seeking a new senior hurling manager. “Derek got a year-long extension last year and that’s up now, so nominations are open for the position for the next ten days.”
