All GAA games in Roscommon have been postponed this weekend as referees have decided to proceed with a withdrawal of their services following the alleged assault on a match official this week.

The matches due to take place this weekend will now be played on 16-18 September.

"Roscommon GAA have been informed by the Roscommon Referee's Committee that they are withdrawing their services for all matches scheduled in the county for today, tomorrow and Sunday," read a statement from the county board.

"The Referee’s Committee feel that this action is necessary to strongly condemn any form of violence, aggression or abuse towards match officials in the GAA.

"Roscommon GAA strongly condemns any behaviour that puts any of our match officials at risk.

"All matches that were due to be played this weekend will be rescheduled to the 16th, 17th and 18th September 2022."

The Roscommon Camogie Board have also confirmed in a statement that all championship fixtures set for this weekend have been postponed and will be re-scheduled to a later date.

This decision follows an incident at an underage match in Ballyforan on Wednesday evening, where a referee was left needing medical attention after an alleged assault.
