The Mayo GAA County Board are still waiting the report of referee Liam Devenney from the controversial Crossmolina Deel Rovers and Ballintubber game last weekend. The game, which was moved from Crossmolina to Ballina on Sunday morning when the pitch was deemed to be unplayable, saw Ballintubber fail to show up at the changed venue. Speaking to the Mayo Advertiser yesterday morning, Mayo GAA secretary Kevin O’Toole said that until the referee’s report is received no firm decision will be made. O’Toole told the Mayo Advertiser that, “We are awaiting the referees report on the game, we are expecting to have received it by Thursday (yesterday ) or Friday. What will happen is that the CCC will review it and a decision made on it then. It will be open to an appeal then by either side. There have been some communications received from Ballintubber on the issue. Even though the result went up on the website, it’s not official until we receive the referee’s report, especially in circumstances like this.”
Gilvarry gets minor job
O’Toole also confirmed that Enda Gilvarry’s name will go before the next meeting of the County Board for ratification for the Mayo minor managers position. He told the Advertiser: “The nomination from the interview committee came back as to be Enda Gilvarry, we had a executive meeting on Monday night and the successful management were told on Tuesday evening. It’s just left to go before the next full county board meeting for ratification officially by the delegates. That meeting could be on the night of the convention or before that yet.” Gilvarry who was selector with the most recent Mayo minor manager Tony Duffy who was ratified as u21 manager last week by the County Board. He was an All Ireland winner with the Mayo minors in 1985 and has previously been manager of Ballina Stephenites and Killala.
