Merry Christmas to all our referees, assessors, coaches and everyone else. Try to keep fit over Christmas!!!!
Congratulations to David Keane who refereed the George 7’s Cup Final on Sunday. Here’s the highlights
North East Club, Skerries RFC, have a new member of the Leinster Rugby Referees…
Philip Mullins, a native of Skerries and former player, successfully passed his trial match and was recently elected as a full member of Leinster Rugby Referees. This continues a proud tradition for the North County Dublin seaside club who have produced a number of notable referees for the game over the years.
Speaking at a recent North East Area Meeting, Mark Power (Area Representative) congratulated Philip on his election and said that he was a worthy addition to the Referees in Leinster.
Philip was presented with his referee kit at the meeting and received a standing ovation from the attendees. He took up refereeing in his early thirties when he finished his playing career and following a Referee Foundation course with David Keane IRFU, Philip officiated at a number of youth and schools fixtures in the area to develop his refereeing skills and knowledge of the Laws.
Philip is married to Barbara and his other hobbies include hill-walking and keeping fit. Well done Philip and we look forward to seeing you blowing the whistle at the Heineken Cup final in a couple of years.
