Seamus Mulvihill To Be Honoured For His Amazing Year.

With just 3 more sleeps to the big Awards Night in the Rose hotel on Saturday night ,it is time to announce another winner of a very special award. When you ask anyone who is the top referee in ladies football in Ireland only one name springs to mind – Seamus Mulvihill. And after this year Seamus has the stats to back up this claim.

Kerry LGFA is honouring Seamus for what has been a fantastic year with the whistle for the Finuge/St Senans man. After being assigned to referee the National Football League final back in May, the Ladies Football association then called upon Seamus to referee the All Ireland minor final last August. After reffing both games with the understated commonsense that has become his trademark, they called upon him once more with the highest accolade available in Ladies football – to referee the All Ireland senior final. Dublin finally claimed the crown that day when they disposed of Mayo in front of a record attendance of 46,286 at Croke Park – and the greatest compliment that could be paid to Seamus is that nobody even noticed that he was there, in a game that was a great advertisment for ladies football. Well done Seamus Mulvihill – Kerry LGFA are honoured to have you as one of our own !

Seamus Mulvihill Takes Charge Of All Ireland Minor Ladies Final.

The honours just keep coming for Kerry’s top ladies referee Seamus Mulvihill. The genial Finuge /St Senans whistleblower has once again been entrusted to take charge of a national fnal – a massive endorsement of his continued excellence and consistency in charge of the biggest games.

Last May Seamus took charge of the National Football League Division 2 final between Cavan and Westmeath, and by all accounts did a fantastic job on the day. So good in fact that Seamus has been asked to take charge of today’s TG4 All Ireland minor final between Cork and Galway – and as they say in Kerry , “no better man for the job”.

Being assigned a game as big as this one doesn’t come about by accident or luck – all of the top referees are continuosly assessed and Seamus is inevitably gaining top marks every time that he steps out on the field. His experience and expert application of the rules are a massive help of course, and Seamus is certain to do a great job once again on the big stage.

All in Kerry Ladies Football would like to send Seamus their best wishes on what is the biggest game of the year for intercounty ladies minor football. We are certain that he will do a fantastic job once again.

The game can be seen live on TG 4 at 5 pm.

Seamus Mulvihill To Ref National League Final On Sunday.

The top refs are needed for the big games, and once again the LGFA have called upon St Senans man Seamus Mulvihill to referee a National Final.
Seamus will take charge of the whistle for the Cavan v Westmeath Lidl National Football league Division 2 final in Parnell Park next Sunday May 7th, and it is a massive and well deserved honour for the genial North Kerry man.
Seamus is no stranger to refereeing national finals as he was in charge of the All Ireland Junior final between Louth and Scotland in 2015 as well as refereeing finals at all levels in Kerry and Munster. He took charge of the 2016 O’Connor Cup final when UCD defeated UL.
It is obvious to see how Seamus has risen to the top in the refereeing game. Good communication skills and a fair but firm application of the rules enable him to stand out amongst his peers. He has huge respect at all levels from the players.
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 was chosen to referee the Kerry County Championship final between South Kerry and Legion, a game which finished in a draw.
The great love of Seamus’ life is his girlfriend Emer who he has been with for 9 years. She is by all accounts a very patient woman.
Seamus is of the opinion the the ladies football rule where you can pick the ball off the ground with your hand should be introduced into the men’s game , and with over 19 years of reffing experience under his belt he is a man that knows what he is talking about.
Sunday is certain to be a big day once more in Seamus’ refereeing career and he wishes to convey his thanks to everyone that has send him good will wishes and messages over the last few days. He is also very grateful to his dedicated umpires who will once again be on hand at next Sunday’s final.
All in Kerry Ladies Football send our best wishes to Seamus and we are certain that he will do a fantastic job as always !
