Mayo GAA Charity Game

Mayo football manager Kevin McStay looking forward to GAA charity match in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association

Mayo GAA senior football manager Kevin McStay, Mayo GAA Cathaoirleach Seamus Tuohy, Mayo GAA secretary Ronan Kirrane and players Diarmuid O’Connor from the Mayo senior football panel and club All-star Aaron Timlin from Knockmore GAA were all at the Centre of Excellence in Bekan this week to show support for Mayo branch of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Mayo GAA in association with the local media named their 2023 Club All-Star panel last month to play the Mayo senior football team on December 30th at the Claremorris GAA Grounds at 1:30pm. The All-star players all starred for their clubs during the Mayo GAA Connacht Gold Senior, Egan Jewellers Intermediate and TF Royal Hotel & Theatre Junior football championships this year.

Mayo GAA PRO John Walker said everyone was looking forward to a great game now on December 30th. “Kevin has confirmed he will be putting out a very strong team to take on the club All-stars and I hope people come out in big numbers to support this very worthy charity,” commented John Walker.

Sixteen different club players featured on the Mayo GAA ‘Team of the Week’ more than once during the season with Breaffy’s Aidan O’Shea and Conor Beirne, Ballinrobe’s Kevin Quinn and Ballina Stephenites Sam Callinan featuring on three different teams.

Lillian McGovern, Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association CEO thanked Mayo GAA for their support saying they depend heavily on donations and fundraising efforts like this one. “We are a small organisation with 85% of our income coming from donations and fundraising. A huge thank you to all the players from the Mayo senior team and all the club players for agreeing to take part in this charity match. It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser and I’m hopeful that there will be a great turnout from the local community,” commented Lillian McGovern.

Mayo GAA Cathaoirleach Seamus Tuohy said everyone associated with Mayo GAA were delighted to be working with the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association as their charity partner for the next twelve months. “Motor Neurone Disease is a life changing disease and sadly we are all becoming aware of the great community and club people who are dealing with the illness. Over the next few months we have a range of different activities planned to fundraise and support the charity and do all we can to raise awareness of the disease and the supports that are out there,” commented Seamus Tuohy

The Club All-Stars will get commemorative Mayo GAA jerseys for the Charity Match with the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association logo on them. The club players will all wear their own club socks and shorts on the day. The charity game will be streamed LIVE on www.mayogaatv.com.

GAAGO today announced at Croke Park its exclusive 2024 GAA Championship broadcast schedule, a new midweek show and the addition of seven-time hurling All-star Richie Hogan to its analysis team.

Within the 38-game schedule twenty-two Sam Maguire cup, nine Liam Mac Carthy Cup and seven Tailteann Cup (‘Game of the week’) matches will be streamed.

The announcement comes after a successful inaugural season operating in the Irish market when a range of live matches that would not ordinarily have been shown to viewers were aired and analysed by a stellar line-up of former players. The platform introduced a fresh player-led analysis to its content offering this season and its unique ‘access all areas’ presentation style will return in 2024.

Individual pay-per-game matches will be available for €12, a ‘3-for-2’ bundle deal will cost €24 and GAA members will receive 10% off any full price (€79) subscription.

Multiple access points will play a key role in the service’s 2024 distribution strategy with virtually all internet-enabled devices being supported by GAAGO.ie and iOS or Android apps enabling casting to a TV screen. Fans may also enjoy accessing GAAGO directly on TVs via Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Google TV, ROKU or connected Samsung and LG smart TV’s.

Speaking at a GAAGO match schedule launch event, Larry McCarthy, Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael, said:

“We are delighted to confirm the 2024 schedule for GAAGO and some enhancements to the offering including the addition of Richie Hogan to an already stellar line up of analysts and the very welcome addition of a new midweek GAA programme to complement the weekend coverage.

“We have worked hard to strike the balance between those games which will be shown by our broadcast partners RTÉ and BBC and those which will be shown on GAAGO. It’s worth re-stating, if these games were not broadcast by GAAGO, they would not be available to view anywhere.

“GAAGO strives to make access as easy as possible and will once again work with care facilities and our clubs through the offer of special packages.

Noel Quinn, Head of GAAGO, said:

“GAAGO is focused on providing an extensive schedule of live and on-demand matches to our fans in Ireland and around the world and today’s schedule announcement once again showcases this commitment. Producing thirty-eight matches, nearly 30 of which will receive full outside broadcast treatment, will ensure fans have a host of extra games to choose from next year and at a very compelling season pass price point.

Thanks to comprehensive engagement with existing GAAGO subscribers since the end of our 2023 exclusive coverage, we recognised the need to introduce additional content and is why we are delighted that 2024 will see a new midweek show made available free of charge. The introduction of in-game digital highlights on GAAGO’s social media channels also aims to meet GAA fan demand for shorter-form match content which aligns to global sports consumption trends. Finally, we look forward to welcoming back our very popular presentation and match analysis team, which this year sees the addition of Richie Hogan with more names to be announced”.
