Referee's tutor Sean Cleere hosted a referee training course over 3 nights, 2 nights in UMPC Nowlan Park last February and March with 3rd night in Langton's House Hotel in July.
Referee's Administrator Pat Hayes would like to thank Sean Cleere for all his hard work in preparing and delivering the course and to Kilkenny GAA for all their help. Pat Hayes commented that I would encourage others to take up refereeing especially those coming to the end of their hurling career.
First round postal votes have been added to ten days of online voting in the search to find the Team of the Decades in Kilkenny hurling, and already contests in various positions are heating up.
As expected, the postal votes made a significant impact on the online votes - in some cases causing a change to front runners but mainly adding further daylight for those in front.
