Mayo GAA will take a leaf out of Kerry's book by holding a major corporate fundraising dinner in New York next summer.

According to the Western People, the event will coincide with Mayo's Connacht SFC quarter-final against New York in early May. Mayo GAA recently unveiled plans to build a three-pitch Centre of Excellence on a 27-acre site at Lough Lannagh outside Castlebar, and they're hoping the New York fundraiser will raise €1 million, which is about one-third of the projected cost of the training centre.

Kerry GAA have raised in the region of €2 million in the Big Apple in recent years for the development of their Centre of Excellence in Currans.
