Mayo offered training camp on home soil
May 05, 2010
Mayo¹s plans for a training camp in Portugal may have been scrapped yesterday, but John O¹Mahony and his men have been offered the opportunity to complete their championship preparations on home soil.
A team-bonding company based in Westport, Gametec Sports Ireland, has stepped into the breach and they¹re hoping that the Green and Red will take them up on their offer.
"We have wonderful facilities here in The Westport Woods Hotel and thanks to our link with Gaemtec Sports we can offer GAA teams everything they need to give them the edge when it comes to performance on the pitch," the hotel¹s owner, Michael Lennon stated yesterday.
"We know that John and the boys were hoping to make the trip to Portugal, but I can assure him that Gametec and The Westport Woods will have the Green and Red in flying form when the game with Sligo comes around," he added.
Gametec director, Philip Kelly is also hoping that O¹Mahony and his men make the decision to prepare for the championship in the shadow of Croagh Patrick.
"We know that we can offer Mayo everything that they¹d have got in Portugal and much more besides. We¹d be delighted if Mayo used Gametec Sports, they wouldn¹t regret it," he added.
The Westport Woods is part of the McEniff Hotel Group, which is owned by Lennon¹s father-in-law, former Donegal All-Ireland winning manager, Brian McEniff.
