We were due to host the Mayo intermediate football championship quarter-final between Kilmaine and The Neale on Sunday next (August 10th). The game has now been postponed following this statement from Mayo GAA board:
Quarter finals of this years intermediate football championship were due to take place this weekend.
We have had a request from James Horan to delay this weekends fixtures based on the following reasons;
1. James Horan feels that players will require maximum recovery time following last weekends quarter final against Cork.
2. There are now only two weeks remaining before the Mayo/Kerry semi final and this is a very important game in Mayo Senior teams plans to progress into the All Ireland Final.
Members of the CCC have discussed the matter at length with James Horan and have explained the pressures relating to County and Provincial fixtures.
A proposal from the Senior Team manager had been considered and agreed and is as follows.
The Intermediate Quarter Finals will now take place on Saturday the 30th of August and the eight participating teams will have their players released to them in the week leading up to the games.
We regret the position regarding the coming weekend but taking all matters into account we have agreed to the proposal to try our best to be fair to all involved.
We are presuming the refixture will take place in Flanagan Park but will await confirmation at a later stage.
