Would you like to become a National Referee?

THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association is inviting anyone interested in reaching the top as a referee to take their first steps on the path to success.

The National Referee Accelerate Programme is welcoming referees with a minimum age of 23 and a minimum five years of refereeing experience to apply for a place on this intensive course.

The course consists of 5 modules which focus on Technical, Physical, Mental and Tactical development as well as offering plenty of support and advice.

Referees that attend all days of the course and complete and pass all modules and assessments will then qualify as a National Referee where they will then be available to take charge of matches at the top level and possibly reach Croke Park some day.


For further details, contact Clare Dowdall: clare.dowdall@lgfa.ie 


Applications to enrol in the course are now being accepted and you can apply by filling out the form below.
