Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta
Mayo Manager John O'Mahony was on hand on Thurs 9th February
to officially launch the 2012 Mayo GAA Comórtas Peile
na Gaeltachta tournament, which takes place in CLG Bhaile
an Chaisil GAA grounds in North Mayo on the weekend of March
10th and 11th this year.
about the Comórtas competition O'Mahony stated that
the competition is one of the most important club tournaments
in the country and that with TG4 and RTÉ Raidió
na Gaeltachta now broadcasting the finals live, it is a great
chance for players and clubs to shine on the national stage.
the years, Mayo intercounty players like Chris Barrett, Billy
Joe Padden, Colm Cafferkey, Mikey Sweeney and Fintan Ruddy
have gone from the Comórtas Peile finals straight onto
the Mayo senior county panel. The Comórtas brings out
the very best in club footballers and I hope it is a similar
situation during this year's Mayo finals in Ballycastle,”
of the Mayo Comórtas Peile competition Piaras Ó
Raghallaigh stated that the commitment of the Gaeltacht clubs
to the Comórtas tournament and the local interest in
it was very strong at present and he looked forward to another
