Mayo secretary Dermot Butler has blasted the 'faceless people' who criticised the county board following Stephen Rochford's exit as senior football manager last summer.

In his report to next Sunday's county convention in Kiltimagh, Butler remarks: "Some of the comments on social media, directed at the county board surrounding the departure of Stephen, were totally unnecessary and were by what I would call faceless people who did not know the full facts.

"It never ceases to amaze me that Mayo continually wash their 'dirty linen' in public, would Dublin or Kerry do the same? I doubt it very much.

"I firmly believe that the officers of the board tried their best to deal with the situation that they found themselves in and did so with the best interests of the county in mind."
