Mayo GAA Row Escalates As Millionaire Fan Presses Ahead With Legal Action

Mayo GAA Row Escalates As Millionaire Fan Presses Ahead With Legal Action

International Supporters Foundation chairman and founder Tim O'Leary has issued High Court proceedings against Mayo GAA seeking the return of a €150,000 donation and damages.

The Bahamas-based market trader confirmed he has initiated legal proceedings against the county board who also threatened the same against O'Leary last week.

The issue stems from a row with the board over governance issues which has been ongoing for several months. In September, the foundation confirmed they were withholding €250,000 raised at a gala dinner in New York. They would not proceed with the funding until "appropriate governance structures" were installed.

O'Leary gave €150,000 in 2018 but is unhappy with the explanations he has received as to how this was spent. In a statement released on social media, he confirmed he would proceed with his action.

"I have given it much thought and deliberation and after speaking to friends/family, yesterday I reluctantly have chosen to press ahead with legal action."
