Referee Foundation Course in Ulster

In order to make these leagues a success, we require a significant number of referees to cover our expanding hurling games programme.

Ulster GAA is hoping to improve the shortfall of officials by running four regional face-to-face workshops as part of the Referee Foundation Course in Ulster over the next number of weeks, all of which all are free of charge.

The aim is for each team at each age grade to have a qualified referee who would be provided with games on the above dates, and/or be able to step in to officiate their own games if the need arises. All referees will be rewarded for their time and effort.

In order to complete the course:

  1. You must be 18yrs old
