Mayo GAA are saddened to learn the passing of PJ McGrath Kilmaine GAA. PJ was a member of the Mayo Senior panel in the mid-60's before he took up refereeing at club and national level. PJ was regarded as one of the greatest referees. He went on to referee the 1982 All-Ireland Senior Football Final and two All-Ireland Minor Finals. PJ was heavily involved in GAA Administration, serving as Mayo County Board Chairman from 1997-2002. Over this time he served on the Connacht Council as president from 1994-1996. PJ was nominated to contest the position of Uachtaran C.L.G in 2002. He also was Chairman of the National Referee's Committee. The County Board Officers, Delegates and clubs wish to offer our sincere condolences to PJ's wife Phil, his family and extended members of the McGrath family. Funeral arrangements will be announced later.
