Nolan named as ref­eree for All-Ire­land semi-fi­nal

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW ref­eree An­thony Nolan has been given the job of of­fi­ci­at­ing in this week­end’s All-Ire­land Se­nior football semi-fi­nal clash be­tween Mon­aghan and Ty­rone in Croke Park.

Nolan, orig­i­nally from Grange­con, but cur­rently mar­ried and liv­ing in Rath­new, has been steadily climb­ing the in­ter-county ref­er­ee­ing lad­der in re­cent years and is widely con­sid­ered as one of the best club ref­er­ees within the county.

A tal­ented foot­baller for club (Balt­in­glass) and county, he moved on to ref­er­ee­ing fol­low­ing his re­tire­ment from the game and this week­end’s ap­point­ment will en­rich a CV that in­cludes last year’s Mi­nor All-Ire­land fi­nal, this year’s league fi­nal be­tween Dublin and Gal­way, the Le­in­ster un­der-20 fi­nal and three cham­pi­onship games to date in 2018.
