Appeal for Referee Co-ordinator

Our underage teams urgently need a volunteer to take on the role of Referee Co-ordinator (to ensure that our underage teams have a referee assigned for home fixtures).

We are asking any members that feel they would have an interest in this role to contact the club secretary, Colm Small  ( ) or Aisling Fay (Cathaoirleach – ).

Please Note – Camogie

In 2023 the Camogie Board will supply referees at 13 Div 1 / 2 & 3. Remaining grades will have to be covered by the Home club as not enough referees to supply all 9 divisions at u13.
Adult games will also be scheduled for Sundays so not nearly enough referees to go around.

Appeal for Camogie Referees

Referees are a key component to ensure our games are played in a safe and enjoyable environment.

The Camogie Association offers a number of courses to those who wish to take up the whistle from a young age, as an adult and also offers refresher courses to assist existing referees.

The courses available are:

  • First Whistle Referee Course – aimed at young referees. Those who complete this course are eligible to referee Go Games and non-competitive blitzes up to Under 12.
  • Foundation Referee Course – aimed at adults who wish to referee games up to adult level.
  • Refresher Course – this course is aimed at existing referees within counties to provide them with a review of the current rules and any changes that may have occurred.
  • Conversion Course – this course is aimed at hurling referees, who are already qualified in hurling, and wish to know the rules of Camogie so that they may officiate games with a full knowledge of the differences between both games.

We are asking any members that feel they would have an interest in becoming a referee to contact the club secretary  ( )
