GAELIC GAMES

Ballymore Eustace GAA's Men's Senior Management team have confirmed they are stepping down from their roles following the end of the team's season on Saturday.
 
A statement released by the club last night read "In just one year, manager Ronan Joyce, along with his selectors Alan Cullagh and John Conway, have achieved great things with this young squad.
The team secured promotion to Division 2 for 2022, won the league final and reached the IFC final in just the second year playing back at that grade.
The Management brought fresh ideas and enthusiasm to Ballymore this year and a lot of progress was made throughout the season.
Thanks to Ronan, Alan & John for all their great work this year and all of us at Ballymore GAA would like to wish them all the very best for the future!"

Ronan will now act as coach & selector for Carlow GAA Men's senior team, under St, Kevin's clubman Niall Carew.

SOCCER

The FAI has issued a statement regarding the decision of referees in the North Dublin Schoolboys and Girls League and Metropolitan Girls League to withdraw their services this weekend.

It follows the abuse of referees by "managers, players, coaches and supporters", according to an NDSL statement.

The FAI says any abuse of referees will not be tolerated and will be punished.

The strike will affect around 550 underage games in the capital.
