Davitts money men in dispute over jumper…

Davitts money men in dispute over jumper...

The first casualty at Davitt Park on Mayo Senior Championship weekend was a jumper belonging to Davitts Head Groundsman and Assistant Treasurer, John A Noone. A number of Committee members and supporters had gathered at the pitch to give the place a general tidy up on the Eve of the big match against Claremorris. Due to the soaring temperatures, John A had taken his jumper off and left it neatly in a corner of the ground, when it was run over by Treasurer Billy “Shredder” Kearns as he attempted to mow the pitch. Billy’s driving in grassy areas is usually poor according to his regular golf partner Laurence Daly. The jumper (a delightful Ralph Lauren creation) didn’t stand a chance and unfortunately ended up in a wheelie bin. Chairman Frank Hyland was too shocked to talk about the incident while Secretary Ronan Kirrane was in bits (like the jumper) and he too refused to comment. Meanwhile, it is reported that Billy has been suspended indefinitely from all mowing duties.
