Roscommon GAA have confirmed that all club matches scheduled to take place this weekend have been postponed.
This comes after referees decided to withdraw their services following an incident at an U-17 match between St Aidan’s and St Dominic’s in Ballyforan on Wednesday night which led to a match official requiring hospital treatment.
In a statement issued this afternoon, Roscommon GAA said:
“Roscommon GAA have been informed by the Roscommon Referee’s Committee that they are withdrawing their services for all matches scheduled in the county for today, tomorrow and Sunday.”
“The Referee’s Committee feel that this action is necessary to strongly condemn any form of violence, aggression or abuse towards match officials in the GAA.”
“Roscommon GAA strongly condemns any behaviour that puts any of our match officials at risk.”
“All matches that were due to be played this weekend will be rescheduled to the 16th, 17th and 18th September 2022.”
