Mayo GAA lodges complaint over Newry throw-in time

MAYO County GAA Board has lodged a complaint over the starting time of the county's All-Ireland SFC qualifier against Down in Newry on Saturday week.

A statement issued by the board said it requested a 3 p.m. throw-in, but was disappointed and surprised to learn of the 7 p.m. start.

The board said it will greatly inconvenience Mayo supporters travelling to and from the fixture at such a late time.

The GAA's fixtures committee has cited traffic and other concerns raised with it by the PSNI as the reason for its decision.

However, many Mayo fans will opt not to travel on this occasion.
