A Kildare GAA Referees strike could be imminent, according to an email received by Kfm Sport this afternoon.
The email states that “One of Kildare finest and most accomplished GAA referees has stepped down from all refereeing duties due to a lack of respect shown to all referees by Kildare County Board over the last couple of days.
The referees as a group have raised a number of key issues that they feel need to be address, but the County Board doesn't seem to have the appetite or desire to address them to their satisfaction.
They are holding a meeting and an all out strike will be up for debate”, the email concluded.
