A private GAA function is being held at a Ballina hotel tonight as a number of players who recently retired from the Mayo senior football squad are being honoured, The Connaught Telegraph has learned.

It is expected tributes will be paid and presentations made to the former players who gave outstanding service over several years, during which Mayo reached a number of All-Ireland SFC finals and won a National League title.

The event was organised in a private capacity, the Mayo GAA County Board confirming it was not directly involved.

However, a number of senior officials were invited to attend, along with the team management and coaches and other guests.
