Mul­vi­hill to ref­eree Ladies All-Ire­land fi­nal

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT -

ST Se­nans club man Sea­mus Mul­vi­hill has been given the hon­our of ref­er­ee­ing the Ladies All-Ire­land SFC foot­ball fi­nal be­tween Mayo and Dublin in Croke Park on Sun­day week.

Mul­vi­hill is no stranger to ref­er­ee­ing na­tional fi­nals as he took the whis­tle for the All Ire­land Mi­nor fi­nal in Au­gust this year be­tween Cork and Galway.

He was also the man in the mid­dle for the All-Ire­land Ju­nior fi­nal in 2015 be­tween Louth and Scot­land and has of­fi­ci­ated club fi­nals at all lev­els in Kerry and Mun­ster. He also took charge of the 2016 Higher Level Col­leges O’Con­nor Cup fi­nal when UCD de­feated UL.

Sea­mus is at the top of his game when it comes to the men’s side of things as well, and in 2015 he had the ul­ti­mate hon­our when he ref­er­eed the County SFC fi­nal be­tween South Kerry and Le­gion, a game that fin­ished in a draw.

Sea­mus be­lieves the rule in the ladies game where the player can pick the ball clean off the ground with the hand should be in­tro­duced into the men’s game, and with over 19 years of ref­er­ee­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, he is a man who knows what he is talk­ing about.
