News broke this morning from local Mayo sources that the All-Ireland semi-finalists had voted no confidence in their current mangement set up of Pat Holmes and Noel Connelly.
It is believed there has been some unrest in the camp since Mayo were defeated in the All-Ireland semi-final to eventual winners Dublin back in August. Further reports suggested that following a team meeting in Breaffy, the Mayo players voted no confidence in the present management which Holmes and Connelly were informed of at the weekend by the team captain Keith Higgins and vice-captain Cillian O’Connor.
Aidan O’Shea tweeted about Mayo GAA two weeks ago sparked the alarm bells that all was not well in the county.
Earlier this evening Mayo county board secretary Vincent Neary joined off the ball to discuss today’s events in which he explain how it was a shock to the system when the news broke of the players vote of no confidence.
“We were due to meet the two players’ reps after the championship concluded for us and that meeting will still go ahead. It’s scheduled for next Thursday and we’re just awaiting confirmation of that from the two players’ reps. Obviously, that has become more urgent than ever because we need to tease out this total bombshell.”
He continued that there has been
“no reason given as to why this has happened. The management haven’t been told why they have a vote of no-confidence in them and that’s disappointing”.
A number of GAA analysts have questioned who will take on the new managerial role after the team publicly disowned their management team. Watch this space.
