Roscommon businesses have expressed disappointment that the Galway Mayo qualifying game will not be played in Dr Hyde Park this Saturday.

On Monday the Hyde was ruled out as a host venue for the Round Four qualifier, due to ground capacity restrictions, in favour of the Gaelic grounds in County Limerick.

The GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee took the decision as there was no “Connacht venue deemed capable of catering for the expected interest in the tie.

“Efforts to fix the Galway-Mayo game for a Connacht venue were not feasible as there was no agreement between the counties to toss for home advantage, and there was no other Connacht venue deemed capable of catering for the expected interest in the tie,” it said in a statement.
