PIC: Top GAA referee running the line in a Junior A semi final last night

It's not all glamour.

You'd often hear GAA players being praised for their commitment to their county and club, and rightly so, but the officials also deserve some kudos for their dedication to the national games.

Eddie Kinsella is one of the top referees in the country, he reffed the All-Ireland Final last year and he's fresh from being in the middle of Dublin and Mayo in their replay a few weeks ago.

Eddie was back to the bread and butter last night as he was spotted doing linesman in the Laois Shopping Centre Junior Football Semi Final.
