Referees Needed

Birr RFC Are Seeking New Referees

Birr RFC are seeking new referees for the club.

Referees provide a vital function in servicing all levels of the game. Without new referees we won't have neutral referees covering our youth games and our home games may be covered by referees from the opposition’s club ( If they have one available). In addition, the leinster branch will also impose a penalty on the club.

Anyone interested in becoming a Referee for the club can contact John Heffernan (0876118166). John is the Club Referees Representative to the Midland Area Referees and can walk you through how to become one.
