Roscommon GAA are in the process of recruiting personnel who are interested in taking up refereeing. If you are in full time work, seeking employment or still going to school or college this is an ideal way to earn extra money and make new friends while keeping yourself healthy and fit in the process. If you think you have what it takes to referee a senior county final, a Connacht final or indeed an All Ireland Senior Final, this is where the dream begins.
