Ulster referees appointed to Allianz League Finals
Several Ulster referees have been appointed to take charge of Allianz Football and Hurling Finals this weekend.
Following up from his appearance at Croke Park last weekend to referee the Dublin V Louth Round 7 game, Down native Paul Faloon will return to headquarters to referee the Division 4 Football Final between Wicklow and Sligo at Croke Park on Saturday afternoon.
James Connors from Donegal will take charge of Roscommon v Armagh in the Division 3A Final on Saturday at Páirc Tailteann, while Down’s Peter Owens will officiate the Division 3B Final between Cavan and Leitrim at Abbottstown.
Finally, on Sunday, Antrim’s Colm McDonald will oversee the Division 2B Hurling Final between Donegal and Meath at Avant Money Páirc Seán MacDiarmada.
Ulster Referees Committee Chairperson, Sean Rooney commented:
“These appointments highlight the ongoing referee development work in our counties and Ulster GAA. While it is disappointing that we have no referee on the National Hurling Referees Championship panel, we now have eight on the National Football Championship panel.
“Ulster GAA will continue to prioritise supporting our match officials, who play an integral part in our games. I also commend the input of all those on the Ulster Referees Committee and indeed our match advisors, who provide vital feedback to our referees.”
Ulster GAA sends best wishes to all referees involved this weekend.
