It’s hard to believe that this time next week we will be in New York for the start of the championship. I’m finding it hard to believe because Mayo are only finished up in the league and very well could have been playing in a league decider on Sunday. In my time I don’t remember such a quick turnaround, we obviously didn’t make the league playoffs very often but that didn’t bother us as long as we avoided relegation as it was all about the championship.
I received a call on Monday evening from a GAA colleague in another county informing me that their county football secretary had just decided not to run for re-election at the forthcoming convention. It appears the secretary in question heard there was a mini coup in the making and decided enough was enough, so he declared his intention not to seek re-election. I happen to know the secretary in question and he has served his county well over the last number of years, working his way up through the lower ranks within the hierarchical system that is the GAA executive to eventually become county secretary, a position that carries a little clout on the local scene at least! He was, I know, a little hurt that he wasn’t allowed a more dignified exit. The least he would have expected was a departure on his terms, having sold his soul to the county board over the last number of years.
