The annual Mayo GAA County Convention takes place this coming Sunday in Ballina. As well as the normal business that needs to be got through at Sunday’s gathering, delegates will also get to hear from the man of the moment, with newly-installed manager Stephen Rochford invited to speak at the event. That alone should, I reckon, guarantee a good turnout.
In addition, there are three Officer posts to be decided on at the Convention. Long-serving Treasurer JP Lambe is stepping down, with Kevin O’Toole and Sean Feeney in contention to replace him. PRO Aiden McLoughlin is also leaving the top table and there’s a four-way contest for this position, featuring Paul Cunnane (Davitts), Brendan Geraghty (Burrishoole), Enda Munnelly (Kilfian) and Tom Reynolds (Westport). The honorary position of President is also up for grabs, with Kilmaine’s PJ McGrath in the frame to replace the outgoing Jim Fleming.
