“Grab Your Whistle” courses are planned for the last weekend in June and the first weekend in July [northside & southside venues respectively] Intending participants must eMail me and be prepared to attend for the two days of the course. Details on the website.

Referees are complaining that they are not being contacted in advance by the ‘home’ side. In a few instances, they have turned out to find neither side present. This is inconsistent with the GAA’s “RESPECT” programme and with the Dublin Ladies Regulations. Defaulting teams must arrange to fund the Referee’s expenses in these cases and clubs involved have been notified.

The Bord Gáis Energy Teams of the League have been announced at an awards ceremony at Croke Park. This joint initiative from Ladies Football and Bord Gáis Energy recognises the players who excelled during the league campaign across all four divisions. Dublin’s Amy McGuinness was chosen.
