SHANNON’s Chris Maguire is to referee Sunday’s Clare SFC final between Éire Óg and Ennistymon.

Reigning champions Éire Óg will meet Ennistymon in the decider which has a confirmed start time of 2pm.

Following a meeting of Clare GAA’s CCCC, it was announced that Wolfe Tones clubman Chris Maguire will be the man in the middle for the fixture. It means that two Shannon referees have been tasked with handling both senior county finals in the one year following Jarlath Donnellan refereeing Ballyea’s one point win over Éire Óg.

A referee since 2013, Chris will be refereeing his second Clare SFC football final this weekend, he was the match official for the 2019 decider which saw St Joseph’s Miltown record back to back titles at the expense of Kilmurry Ibrickane.

2019 was also his first year officiating at both codes. A year previous he joined the provincial gaelic football panel for referees a year previous.

Maguire is currently a member of the national referee’s panel and took charge of games in Division 4 of the Allianz National Football League.

Thus far in this year’s campaign, he has been in charge of Ennistymon’s group games with Doonbeg and Kilmurry Ibrickane plus Éire Óg’s first round tie against St Breckan’s.

Earlier this year, Maguire was referee for the Munster senior club final between Austin Stacks and St Finbarr’s, he also did the quarter-final meeting of The Nire versus Newcastlewest. He was also in charge of this year’s Munster U20 football final which saw Kerry overcome Cork 1-11 0-07.
