Desmond League returns this weekend after referee controversy

Junior action in the Limerick Desmond League is due to resume this Sunday

ACTION is set to resume this weekend in the Limerick Desmond League after a resolution over a dispute with the local referee's society was found. 

The Limerick Desmond League had become embroiled in a dispute with the Limerick West Branch of the Irish Soccer Referees Society. This dispute had resulted in match officials withdrawing their services from Desmond League games, which had seen all three junior divisions and youths cup delayed.
