He is a very good referee & a mistake on the day. I don’t know him personally but am sure he regrets it and won’t happen to him again. Don’t think he has any Senior A Medals, though has reffed a lot of Senior A over the years and never an issue
He would have been part of the O’Tooles 3 in a row side from the mid 90’s and possibly could have been still there when they won it again around 2002
There is usually a comment on the fixture noting its to be finished on the day
Didnt see it for any of the 21s games
Would have thought Mearnog would have got home advantage strange by the county boards to give sylvesters home advantage twice
Neither manager knew the system either it appears
It was issued when the 1st set of fixtures came out and referred to the entire competition.
Ah, senior A medals as a player. Thought was referring to as a ref
In body of email from CCC out to clubs today…
Fixtures for weekending November 27th are attached.
Reminder – All Championship Games – including Finals – are Winner on the Day. Extra time and Penalties if required!
I will go for Boden in the A, Lucan in the B and Isles in the C to win out
Was at the Isles Brigids game and Isles had some nice hurlers . 10, 11 and 13 were all well able to hurl. Took a little to much out of the ball at times . Breslin was the stand out player on the pitch for Brigids . He probably got 6 from play and fouled for another few scores.
Yeah im pretty sure he has 4 but i wouldnt be100 on that.
Be more likely from 1990 than 2002
Dont know tbh but listen id have taken the chance of one.
Just talking to a former otooles player just confirmed it there 90 and 3in a row and also got a blue star .
So you called him directly is what you are saying?
2 days ago you were telling all to move on and here you are still hounding the poor man by contacting him “re his medals” and thereby reminding him of the game last week.

What a game! Super win lads! 💙💚⚾️
U21HC Fixtures into December
A joke playing an A hurling final in O’Toole Park. If not Parnell, even Adamstown would have been better
At least it’s in a neutral grounds. It had been hinted that it would be played in Ballyboden
