I’ll forever be thankful for the consistency of brilliant talent making their way into the Mayo panel.

Every year we have witnessed the start of brilliant careers and have gotten to see eventful football throughout the years.

Over the past two years we have gotten brilliant6 additions to the senior panel and we are fortunate to say we have exceptional talent wearing the Mayo jersey.

In today’s post I’ll be talking about a rising star coming into the mix in Mayo and exceptional club veteran, goalkeeper Rory Byrne.

Having made his way into the senior panel in 2017, the Castlebar native is finally getting an opportunity to show James Horan what he can do on the field.
Byrne hasn’t been shy of success in his GAA career in so far, captaining Castlebar Mitchells to three Mayo Club Championships 2015/16/17.


When David Clarke hung up his Mayo jersey it was time for a goalie to step up and fight alongside Rob Hennelly for the number one shirt and there was no better keeper for the job than Rory.
Like many Mitchels fans will agree, seeing Rory in action

Although it’s early days in his Mayo career, I’ve no doubt we will finally see what Byrne is truly capable of on the field.
I’ve said many a times we got to witness the start of what turned out to be brilliant careers in Mayo GAA and with the continuously improvement I’ve no doubt Byrne will be a great star in the green a d red jersey.
