The referee and his fellow match officials are entrusted with a weighty role – to apply the rules of our games. Gaelic Games is unique in that the team of match officials consists of a referee, two linesmen, four umpires and the sideline official.

The essential role, responsibility and privilege of the team of match officials is to apply the rules in order to create the conditions for our games to be played well. Proper application of the rules creates these conditions. In that way we will value those players that play with skill, courage, commitment, genius, flair, strength and legitimate aggression.

This section provides information on all aspects of relevance to match officials, from the playing rules of hurling and football to the role of the referee, linesman, umpire and sideline official.

There is a referee course on in Kilcock GAA on Friday the 1st of July 2011 at 7.30pm.

This course will be given by Fergus Deveraux and Tommy O’Rourke, both of whom are intercounty referee assessors and former intercounty referees.

I would encourage all people (over 16 years of age) to come along. After the course you will be eligible to referee up to and including U/13 Football and hurling.

I would encourage both men and women to come along. Camogie and Ladies football referees are in need within the club.

A draw would be enough to ensure that Armagh don’t make a quick return to Division 2, but they could be relying on other results as the Rebels rarely lose at home and will be going all out for the win that would see them pip their great rivals Kerry for a place in the final on the basis of their superior head-to-head record.
