The Mayo GAA County Board has this morning announced that it will be suspending all levy payments on GAA clubs for the months of March and April in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.
In a statement, the Mayo GAA Executive acknowledged that clubs and members are facing an uncertain and challenging period and said it would be aiming to ease the burden on clubs across the county by suspending the levy payments. It said the situation regarding the payments will be reviewed next month and clubs will be updated accordingly.
The Executive also said that it wished to acknowledge the work clubs are currently undertaking to help and support the vulnerable members of the community and thanked them for their efforts. Clubs around the county have sought to alleviate some of the stress and uncertainty the Covid-19 crisis has placed upon their older and more vulnerable members by organising grocery deliveries, assisting around homes and offering other supports.
