Ulster GAA are saddened to hear of the passing of Paul McKeever, who was a current member of the Ulster Referees panel. From the Roger Casements club in Portglenone, County Antrim, Paul represented his county at Minor and Under 21 Level and was part of the Antrim Minor team beaten in the Ulster Final by Tyrone in 1997.
Paul had been refereeing since 2012, he joined the Ulster Referees Academy in 2014 and was a member of the National Support Panel for the past two years.
On the provincial stage, Paul refereed in the Ulster Club Championships, the Ulster Minor Football Championship and in 2018 he refereed the Ulster Senior Football League Final in March and the Under 20 Championship game between Donegal and Cavan in May.
Paul McKeever was a true gentleman who was always an enthusiastic and loyal match official at our games. To Paul’s wife Nicola, children Ryan, Conor and Erin, and entire McKeever family circle, his team of umpires, the gaels of Roger Casements, Antrim GAA and his many friends, Ulster GAA offer our deepest sympathy at this very sad time. A Minutes Silence will be observed at all Ulster Club games this weekend.
Go ndéanna Dia trocaire ar a anam.
