It looks like an overhead shot after a bad driver went bananas in a snowy car park while trying to maouevre the vehicle into a spot. But 'tis lovely otherwise.

Why do the referees need a new logo???

Colours are brutal but the design itself manages to incorporate part of the GAAs logo as well as a Celtic cross (or am I looking for shit that's not there???).

It looks like the mark of some sinister Society I'm thinking.

The KKK, the freemasons, the Nationalist Socialists etc. Along those lines. Sort of appropriate really, vow of silence and all.

Did someone get one of those drawing things that used various patterns of circles that were popular in the 80's, or was the designer a work experience kid?

Sporigraph or something like that.

Why do they even need one?
Every time you open your mouth you have this wonderful ability to continually confirm what I think.

Looks like I'm not the only one who didn't know the referees had a separate badge. Assumed they used the same GAA crest as the players. What's the point of it? It's hardly as if there's a roaring trade in Replica Referees jersies is there?
I can't say I've noticed a bunch of young lads running round their gardens pretending to be Dickie Murphy et al.

The Reiteoir emblem shown represents all the officials who preside over our National Games.

Rather than call our officials 'Match Officials' giving the impression of single matches, it was decided to call them 'Games Officials', thus incorporating our national games of both Gaelic Football & Hurling.

Whether the respective official(s) are officiating at an Under 8's Football game in Tralee or at an All-Ireland Senior Hurling Final in Croke Park, there is a common theme to each game and that is that these games require games official(s) on the day. The above logo depicts this uniformity regardless of location, competition etc.

Reiteoir is the umbrella under which Referee, Standby Referee, Linesmen, Sideline Official, Umpires and Assessors all come.

The logo itself has incorporated:

The 32 counties of Ireland

4 provinces and their respective championships

The inclusion of New York & London (competing in respective provinces during the Championship)

The All Ireland series

A Football (to represent Gaelic Football)

A Sliotar (to represent Hurling)

The name Reiteoir to incorporate all Games Officials

Finally a Celtic theme (both colour and design) to highlight the way in which our National Games are unique and originated in Ireland.

 
CAN any one see any of the above in the logo  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
