GAA referees raise over €21,000 for Pieta House


The GAA’s 72-man National Panel of inter-county referees have raised over €21,000 and counting for the suicide prevention and bereavement charity, Pieta House, today by running a cumulative total of 810 kilometres.

The distance ran equated to a run around Ireland from one iconic GAA stadium to another – from Wexford Park to Páirc Uí Chaoimh to MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey and then back down to Croke Park.

810 kilometres is also the cumulative distance the 72 referees would likely run were they all officiating matches this weekend.
