Oisin Mullin today advised the club that he will remain in Ireland to play in the GAA with Mayo rather than take up an opportunity to play with the Cats.

Geelong’s list manager Andrew Mackie recognised the difficulty Mullin faced in making his decions and wished him well.

“Moving to a new country to take up a new game is a significant decision, and we respect the fact that Oisin has decided to remain at home,” Mackie said.

“We have enjoyed getting to know Oisin through this process and wish him well with Mayo as they seek an All-Ireland title. We hope he can achieve his goals both on and off the field.”
