We had an excellent turnout of over 200 referees, assessors and others at our annual seminar. The event was held at the Louis Fitzgerald Hotel in Dublin on Sunday August 20th. The event included multiple presentations with a main focus being on law changes and the new tackle height. This discussion was facilitated by Sean Gallagher of the IRFU Referee Department as is a must for any referee looking to take to the pitch this season.
