Growing Fear Among Referees They Will Be Attacked While Officiating Matches

That's the view of The Irish Soccer Referees' Society after a game had to abandoned in County Wexford when a ref was allegedly assaulted. 

It's alleged Michael Comiskey was wrestled to the ground and assaulted during the match between The Ballagh United and Gorey Celtic on Sunday morning.

This is at least the 18th attack on a referee since Daniel Sweeney was hospitalised after being attacked in Offaly last November.
