Mayo Ladies Gaelic Football manager Peter Leahy has released a statement on the player walkout controversy that recently hit the county.
Mayo overcame Cavan 3-23 to 4-13 in their hugely entertaining TG4 ladies SFC Group 4 game. That game came after a significant group of players had taken the decision to depart the senior panel earlier in the week. In a statement released by the group through the Women's GPA, it was said they had stepped away "for player welfare issues that are personal and sensitive to the players involved."
In the aftermath of that match, Leahy read out a prepared statement contesting the claim that all the players had left for the same reason.

Speaking to balls.ie earlier in the week, Cora Staunton had stated the number at 14: "At the moment, obviously, that's 14 people gone from the team and management."
Staunton had said that there will be further comment from the group after today's tie.
