All-Ireland final

  • Meath's David Gough is set to referee the All-Ireland senior football final between Dublin and Kerry at Croke Park on Sunday September 1st.

    The announcement has yet to be confirmed by the GAA, but it would be Gough's first time to take charge of the decider.

    The potential for Slane clubman Gough to be given the final attracted criticism from the former Kerry manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice and the ex-Kerry player Aidan O'Mahony, as the referee lives and works in Dublin.

    Without questioning his integrity or abilities, they felt it would be better to appoint a referee with no links to the capital.

  • Cork's Conor Lane has been appointed referee for the clash of Galway and Monaghan in the All-Ireland senior football Super 8's this weekend.

    The game throws in at Pearse Stadium at 6pm Saturday evening.

    On Sunday, Roscommon and Dublin meet in Croke Park at 3.30.

    Ahead of that clash, Fermanagh's Niall Cullen will referee the meeting of Mayo and Kildare in the All-Ireland U20 final.

    The final throws in at 1.15.
