The Mayo News (paper and digital versions) is reporting today that the appointment of Stephen Rochford as the new Mayo manager is expected to be formally ratified by the County Board at its next meeting this night week (1st December). Ahead of this, the mediation process being undertaken by Martin Conroy is – according to County Board vice-chairman Seamus Tuohy – set to be wrapped up this week.
The report states that County Board officials are due to meet with Stephen this coming weekend. Following this meeting, where it’s expected that the finer details of the appointment will be thrashed out, the decision to appoint him is set to be signed off by the County Board next Tuesday.
Stephen himself indicated after the match in Tuam last Sunday that it was time to get the matter resolved. By the sounds of it, this is what’s finally about to happen.
