Ladies referees course in Longford

Ladies Referees Course in Longford


A course for ladies referees and prospective referees was held
in Pearse Park, Longford on Friday February 23rd under the auspices
of the Ladies County Board. This was the first course of its kind
held in Longford. It was conducted by National Development Officer
Pat Quill and attended by twenty-five members from various clubs
in the county. In addition to possible referees team managers
and coaches had also been invited to attend and a number of them
did so.

Of the group three are existing referees and nine are potential
referees with some but very little experience of refereeing. All
those who attended felt that the course had been both useful and
constructive. Stretching over just two and half hours it was,
of necessity, intensive but the participants were fully concentrated
and gave undivided attention. The course is divided into two sections
with the first devoted to duties of the referee and the second
to rules of the game.

Time was allowed for some questions. Tommie O’Donoghue, Chairman
of the Ladies County Board and himself an experienced referee,
thanked Pat Quill for travelling from Wexford to conduct the course
which he felt would be of immense assistance to the new referees
who will be put to work immediately.
