What a turnout!!! Great to see over 160 referees, assessors and members pack into Lansdowne FC for this years Annual Referee Seminar, to kickstart the 2018/19 season. Many thanks to Robert Deacon, Vice President of Leinster Rugby for the warm introduction and to our own President Bryan O’Neill for his warm welcome.
Thank you to Sean Gallagher for his excellent presentation, coupled with that of Dudley Phillips, Head of Referees IRFU. It was also great to see Alain Rolland back at our seminar and we thank him for his presentation and warm words. Paul Haycock gave a short but effective presentation on fitness – please get in contact with Denis to get on the group.
Thanks to Denis and the admin committee for their work and also Lansdowne FC for their facilities. Finally well done to our tankards winners and to Berney White on his Referee of the Year award from last season.
