Former Glenfin player Maggie Farrelly wrote her name into Ulster GAA history on Sunday last when she ran the line in Tyrone v Derry Dr McKenna Cup game in Omagh.
The Cavan native and a member of the Laragh club played for Glenfin for a couple of seasons and was a member of the Glenfin championship winning team of 2011; a first for the Gaeltacht Lar club.
Farrelly has been refereeing club games in Cavan for a number of years, and also refereed in last season’s Ulster Club football league. Last weekend’s outing was the first time a female official acted in a senior inter-county game in Ulster. Tyrone defeated Derry 1-14 to 0-15.
