A Tribute To GAA Umpires: The Goddamn Coolest People On The Planet

PJ Browne
By PJ Browne Updated

The GAA umpire is a much maligned individual. You get a call right, there's no praise. Get something wrong and it's hell. And what do you get from it all, a cup of tea and post-match meal?

This is a little tribute to what's great about those lads in the white coats.

Let there be not doubt, umpires are the coolest group of individuals on the planet

Everyone wants to get in on the action - even 'celebs'

In order here - Ted Walsh, Ronnie Delany, Colm O'Rourke, Davy Fitz, Michael O'Leary and Tadhg Furlong.

One of the most important aspects of being an umpire is 'taking up a good position'

That was good positioning, this is great positioning

It's not just about signalling for points, goals, wides and 45s or 65s - there are other duties

It's not all pre-match tea and cake, half-time tea and post-match dinner - sometimes it's tough
