GAA Referee Recruitment Tipperary

Sean Nugent, the then Chairman of Tipperary County Board set up a Referee Recruitment committee for Tipperary in 2014. This is the first such committee in the Country. Its aim is to put a plan in place to meet refereeing needs within the Premier County in the future.

This new committee is being chaired by John Lonergan with representatives from each of the 4 Divisions. With the growth in popularity of Gaelic Games, the demand for match officials is increasing. With over four thousand games being played in our county on an annual basis, the role of the referee is a very important cog of the wheel to ensure all games take place.
