Video Referees At Inter-County Championship Games

Tipp-Kilkenny-As was expected, a motion which  proposed that video referees should be introduced for Inter-County Championship GAA games, was carried at Monday night’s Tipperary County Convention, held in Thurles.

The motion, tabled by the Fr. Sheehy‘s GAA club, which is the club of County Chairman Barry O’Brien,  was carried by 75 votes to 39 and will now go for discussion to next year’s annual Congress to be held in Newcastle, Co. Down.

The motion proposes that two video referees in future be appointed for all Inter-County Senior Championship games, from provincial final level to the All-Ireland finals. This would allow the match referee to consult with them on all contentious issues arising.

Chairman Barry O’Brien had promised to bring this motion to convention, following Kilkenny’s controversial penalty in the Tipperary /Kilkenny All-Ireland hurling final, which saw Tipperary defeated by Brian Cody‘s Kilkenny side last September.
