I think most people will agree by now that the dispute that has occurred between Mayo GAA and the Mayo GAA International Supporters Foundation (which, for the sake of brevity, I’ll refer to simply as the Foundation) is a hugely regrettable mess. I don’t, though, want to dwell on the dispute itself in this piece. Instead my aim is to […]

Real men wanted now!
