There will be severe penalties for any clubs playing players not on the panel sent into me. Any club who hasn’t sent their panels to me on time will have each game forfeited until I get it.
  • A fair play rule is in operation in all league North Cork fixtures but does not include semi-finals, finals or any Championship game.

The referee is then able to gain some vital experience that will stand to them as they progress up the ranks.


The event took place in Mallow GAA complex with some great speakers in attendance. Lead by Games Manager Kevin O’Callaghan.

Experienced referees Justin Murphy and Ciaran O’Regan were on hand to deliver the course.
