Financial trader Tim O’Leary is holding back donations to Mayo GAA over ‘governance issues’

Via RTÉ

The independent supporters fund is backed by UK-based financial trader Tim O’Leary, who is of Mayo descent.

The body sent an email to clubs ahead of last night’s county board meeting saying that it was withholding €250,000 of money it had raised in a row over governance.

This email read: “It is clear to the foundation that Mayo GAA need significant financial support to sustain and develop GAA games in the county. The foundation’s support is now at risk due to the serious deficits in financial governance at board level.”

The statement also claims that O’Leary had made a €150,000 donation to the Mayo senior football team fund on the understanding that receipts would be provided to show how that money was spent.

The supporters fund says what was provided to them included: “copies of multiple invoices and receipts seemingly randomly picked from the financial files.”

Right.

Absolutely nothing to see here.

FIGHT!

ODEON will screen the All Ireland GAA Football Final this Sunday, September 1 in three of their Dublin based cinemas (Stillorgan, Coolock and Charlestown).

The pre-match coverage will start at 3pm with the throw in between Dublin and Kerry starting at 3.30pm.

Entry is FREE and seats will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

If you’re not heading to Croke Park then ODEON in Stillorgan, Coolock and Charlestown is the best place to see if the Dubs make it 5-in-a-row.

FIGHT!

Kerry GAA footballer Kevin McCarthy

 

The court heard that McCarthy had not eaten on the day in question and that he had drank three or four cans of Carlsberg on the bus; five or six brandy and Baileys; and vodka and Red Bull.

Gulp.

The court heard that McCarthy headbutted and bit [security guard] Mr Zybura and also tried to kick him in the groin…

Ouch.

…he injured  garda, Garda Michael Dalton, who suffered a soft- tissue injury to his wrist and was unable to work for more than two months.

Christ.

  Gda Coleman was also injured by McCarthy, who “bit him on the right hand, and left teeth-marks

Cage him!

Defence solicitor Padraig O’Connell said his client had never been in trouble with the law and was known for his sporting prowess.

Oh.

Testimonials were handed in to court, including from Kilcummin GAA club, the Kerry County Board, and a former Killarney town councillor, Niall ‘Botty’ O’Callaghan…

Ah.

Judge Waters convicted Mr McCarthy for all three assaults and fined him a total of €1,400.

Good times.
