“Some people say that we are cursed, we say that we are blessed.”

Friday was Mayo Day and Mayo GAA released a specially commissioned video which, if you are from the county will have the hairs rising on the back of your neck.

It is in support of Laochra Mhaigh Eo, an initiative to raise funds for the resurfacing of MacHale Park through the sale of tiles on a wall to be developed at the ground.

There are packages ranging from €250 up to €1,000 and it looks like the kind of idea that would appeal tp the diaspora and their families.

After watching the video and catching that feeling once more about what it is like to be a supporter, it is a compelling story.


The GAA and four individual County Boards are among more than 250+ members of the Sport for Business network of sporting and business organisations working together across a number of key areas.
