A soccer match in County Wexford had to be abandoned in the 70th minute at the weekend.
It’s after referee Michael Comiskey was allegedly assaulted.
It is alleged that he was wrestled to the ground and assaulted during the match between The Ballagh United and Gorey Celtic on Sunday morning.
This would be at least the 18th attack on a referee since Daniel Sweeney was hospitalised after being attacked in Offaly last November.
Is this the new norm on our amateur pitches.
Paul O'Brien, President of the Irish Soccer Referees' Society joined Jonathan Healy to explain why the referees are now starting to lose their patience.
