Mayo GAA has suspended three members of the county senior backroom team for a breach of Covid-19 guidelines at last month's All-Ireland SFC final against Dublin at Croke Park.

The Mayo board held a meeting last Friday night when the issue was discussed and following that meeting a statement was released, which stated that: "Mayo GAA has examined the issue of the presence of unaccredited backroom team members at last year’s All-Ireland Football Final after it was recently brought to our attention.

"Following a review process, all unaccredited members of the backroom team admitted their mistake, apologised sincerely for their actions and have been suspended for three months.

"These individuals attended the game without the knowledge of the County Boards officers and the team manager.

"Mayo GAA would like to place on record our commitment to the GAA and the government’s Covid guidelines, all of which are in place for the safety and well-being of our players, members and the wider community."

An official party of 12 backroom members was allowed into the ground for 2020 championship games  but the GAA had asked the All-Ireland runners-up to explain the presence of non-accredited backroom members at the final.
