On behalf of Mayo G.A.A I would like to sincerely thank Colm for his outstanding commitment and service to Mayo G.A.A. Colm was an exceptional underage player for his club Davitt's and followed these very high standards up when he progressed to Inter-County Football. His absolute commitment to the cause, whether it be a training session or an All-Ireland Final, never waived and he inspired so many with his endeavours. Mayo GAA wishes Colm and his family the very best of luck in the future.
