Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Young Whistlers

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Young Whistlers

A fantastic afternoon was spent in St. Anthony’s Hall on Thursday 21st of November between 3pm and 5pm where a group of 5th class boys and girls from schools in the North East of Wicklow were coached in the art of refereeing by Games Development Officer Garrett Doyle. The pupils were given an insight into the etiquette attached to being a referee, to the simple rules of Gaelic football, to the hand signals required and to keeping a record of scores, etc. Each prospective player was then presented with a referee's top, whistle and certificate. These Young Whistlers will go on to referee within their schools and at Allianz Cumann na mBunscol blitzes in the coming year.

Tremendous credit must go to the pupils themselves for their excellent participation, attention and manners, well done to Kilcoole’s representatives, we look forward to seeing them taking charge of games in the near future. Thank you also to Cumann na mBunscol Chill Mhantáin and Ms. Frawley and Ms. Fahy for organising the course in conjunction with Garrett.
