Three members of the Mayo GAA senior football backroom team have been suspended from their roles for three months after accessing last month’s All-Ireland final between Mayo and Dublin at Croke Park without undergoing the relevant Covid-19 screening checks.

Following a review process, the trio involved have admitted their wrongdoing and apologised sincerely for their actions, and have been suspended from their roles in the backroom team for a period of three months.

It is understood that Croke Park officials had this week asked Mayo GAA to explain the presence of the three unaccredited backroom team members at the All-Ireland on December 19. Croke Park had obtained CCTV footage of the trio gaining access to the stadium covertly and in contravention of the strict Covid-19 guidelines on attendance at championship matches.

Mayo GAA has claimed that the trio attended the game without the knowledge of either County Board officials or the senior team management and has reinstated its commitment to the GAA’s and the government’s Covid-19 guidelines.
