Mayo team and panel for 2010/11 campaign
The Mayo team is normally made up of players who play in the Super league with the occasional Premier Division player included in the panel. Mayo has yet to taste success in the competition but did reach the final during the 1980/81 season under the guidance of manager Donal Benson. Mayo went under to a Leinster Senior League side that included a young Paul McGrath.
Mayo did reach the quarter finals on several occasions, and also reached the semi finals in 1997 under P J Duffy, 2002 under Fergie McEllin and 2009 under Declan Kilkelly. Mayo were most unlucky on all three occasions to fail at this penultimate stage.
