Referees in the county

(Oldest Posts First)

As Championship approaches and having seen some very good and dismal refereeing performances in the past couple of weeks!!I am wondering what everyone elses opinions are on the best referees in the county, both young and old?

Standard is improving alot at underage level, maybe thats because ther are younger refs. at senior level the division 1 games sees the best refs mostly namely the duffys, john gilmartin, john kilgallon, ciaran o donnell, gus chapman, Dermot walsh, sean rooney, john griffin. some good young lads there too wouldnt know many of them...

The referees this year are not great as usual, so inconsistant.. every player in the county knows how bad ciaran odonnell is. as for marty duffy we seen on live television yesterday him sending off murphy for a nothing challenge.

Thank God we have lads like you SLIGO 1. You are correct our refs are poor and obivously we need new ones.
Will YOU YOURSELF have a go and see if YOU can do any better ??? I am sure YOU will. Naturally with YOUR superior knowledge of the rules and YOUR razor like responses YOU will not make any wrong calls. You are the REF we have been waiting for here in Sligo. If you can ref a few underage games during the week and a big match every Saturday and Sunday your fame is bound to spread and it will not be long until we see you on the TV doing the really big games.
Maybe you could write a short post for us here on this site after you ref each game and explain to us mere mortals how you made all the really big calls in your games. I cant wait to hear your words of wisdom !! Will YOU take up the challenge ?????????????????????????????????????????????????

jezz sligo1 ya touched a nerve there with tommymurphy.... dont see why, id have to agree with what ya said, ciaran o donnell is probibly the worst ref i have seen in the country and it mistifies me how he still gets games, marty duffy bottled it aswell at the weekend!! clearly just wanted to even the numbers unfairly sending murphy off although he wasnt helped by his linesman, and then no14 for cavan nearly took laceys head off near the end and he gives him a yellow? so inconsistant....

by the way tommymurphy, this is a message board where people put up their opinons not a scouting site for refs, if you disagree with what someone says prove your point not blame the person for pointing out someone elses flaws, its only their opinon anyway
