The GAA have designated this coming Sunday, October 23rd, as national “Referee Respect Day.” To mark the occasion, local referee, Michael Loftus, came in to speak with the P6 and P7 classes. The children prepared some great questions for Michael and they learned lots about the rules of Gaelic football, camogie, hurling and ladies football, as well as his refereeing experience in general. Sincere thanks to Michael for taking the time to come in and speak with the children.
The children have learned that it is never OK to disrespect anyone, including on the field. Without referees, there are no games. More information about Referee Respect Day can be found on the links below.
