After another busy season in Leinster, the summer break was a welcome relief for all. At the end of last season Conor Byrne was elected President of the Leinster Rugby Referees taking over from David MacDonald. Conor addressed the referees AGM after his election saying :
“I am indeed extremely honoured to be elected President of the Association of Referees Leinster Branch for the 2017/18 season an Association that has been an integral part of my life over many years. Ours is an Association that is held in high esteem both far and wide and one which has and continues to make an extraordinary contribution to the very fabric of our sport.
