Apply Now To Be An LGFA Referee Assessor

Leinster LGFA are now recruiting new Referee Assessors for 2019 and are looking for candidates to support our panel of referees and in turn to continue to improve the standard of refereeing in Leinster.

Becoming an LGFA Referee Assessor will put you in a key role in the development of our referees by providing valuable feedback and guidance to referees on the Leinster Panel. The assessor’s role involves attending matches and observing a referee’s performance, offering advice after the game and producing a typed report for Leinster LGFA. 

The minimum requirements are:

  • A minimum of 5 years experience within the Gaelic Games Code


  • Experience of mentoring/assessment of adults in recognised NGB’s/organisations

Applicants should have full knowledge of the rules of Ladies Gaelic Football and the application of these rules, and an up to date knowledge of the LGFA referee pathways and qualifications.

They must be available to conduct assessments midweek and mainly at the weekends, and have good IT skills to complete typed assessments and review video clips where necessary. 

Our Referee Assessors play a major role within our Association in conducting assessments to ensure standards are increased and support is provided to referees on the Leinster Referee Panel. Referee Assessing is a very rewarding experience and provides personnel with the opportunity to influence and shape so many of our current referees which in turn raise standards of refereeing at all levels. The feedback provided through assessments allows referees to continue to progress and reach their own goals and targets.

For more information on the role, please contact Suzi Doyle, Leinster LGFA Games Development Officer at or 087 768 1288.
