Even with eight regulars missing from their starting line-up, Westport United showed no mercy to Charlestown Athletic in the Sportspark on Sunday. No less than seven different Westport United players got on the score sheet in their 7-2 route of the east Mayo side. Westport struck four goals on the bounce from injury time in the first half until the 56th minute of the contest, to turn at 1-0 lead into a 5-0 lead and sap the fight out of a Charlestown Athletic team who up until that point had been doing their best to hang in with home-team.

Within the concrete bowels of the new stand in McHale Park last Saturday night the possible future direction of GAA in Mayo was launched. There were no bells and whistles to the launch, just a top table, a semi-circle of chairs and a selection of people who have the best interests of GAA in Mayo at heart. Liam Horan was the man tasked with pulling all the possible strands of the plan together, the Ballinrobe club-man had overseen the whole process since his appointment as chairperson of the project last October. A steering committee of 19 people was selected and 10 different areas selected to be examined. In total 86 people contributed to 67 meetings that were held over the past five months to get to last Saturday night and the launch of the document. The areas that were examined were finance and funding, coaching and games development, bridging the gap, bringing through high-potential players, urbanisation and rural depopulation, club-board relations and structures, public relations, harnessing support of Mayo people worldwide, Mayo GAA as a stimulator of economic activity, and hurling and secondary schools.
