Please see notice received from the Down County Board regarding Referees:
“On behalf of Referees Administration asking you to identify people within your Club who would be willing to consider being a Referee in Down GAA IN 2018.
Referees Administration would provide full training and mentoring for any new referees, we are keen that people who might like to consider a career in refereeing would be supported and encouraged by their Club in the first instance and then likewise by the County.
There is a good platform now for Referees to progress through the ranks and we in Down have been very proud of the achievements of men like Ciaran Branagan, Paul Faloon and Brendan Rice in recent times.
This is a very important role in our Association and I would ask you to circulate this amongst your membership and if you have anyone interested then please contact Seamus Walsh Referees Administrator 07802518345 or County Chairman Sean Rooney 07710455266
