So Mayo have hung the ‘help wanted’ sign outside the front door again. Once the final whistle was blown in Pearse Park at around 8.25pm last Saturday, there was never going to be any other option. John O’Mahony wasted no time in putting to an end his four seasons in charge of the side once the dye had been cast and the terminal whistle on the game and his managment of Mayo was blown by Gearoid Ó Conámha in the fading midlands sunlight.
It appears the cuts to the number of special needs assistants in classrooms across the country which Fine Gael TD John O’Mahony described as “shameful” will go ahead, following the defeat of a private members’ motion in the Dáil on Wednesday night. Fine Gael had brought the Bill to the floor to try to halt the cuts but it was defeated by the Government. “This was a chance for our Government TD and Minister to strike a blow for Mayo, which they didn’t do,” Deputy O’Mahony, told the Mayo Advertiser. “This all came a day after the banks were bailed out for billions of euro, while it would have taken a minuscule amount of money to sort this problem out.”

Fine Gael TD John O’Mahony has hit out at the spending of rent on buildings by the Government for offices for decentralisation when the rent being paid on these buildings could be used to fund the projects already agreed on by the Government. Almost €10 million has been spent nationwide on the rent of offices by the Office of Public Works on behalf of the Government since the decentralisation programme began. O’Mahony told the Mayo Advertiser this week: “This is a huge issue in relation to the spending of money that could be used to get these offices in a permeant location. I’m fully supportive of the issue of decentralisation, but not in the way it has been done.”
