This is Not Soccer – An Evening with International Rugby Referee Nigel Owens…

On the 6th of March 2014 Nigel Owens will talk about his life as one of the world’s leading referees and answer questions in a Q&A in the Celbridge Manor Hotel.

The event is being run to raise funds for the NUIM Barnhall U12s team.

The event organsier Tom Colton, who is a Leinster Branch Rugby Referee (ARLB) said ” It is a great honour that Nigel accepted my invitation to do this event for us. He is one of the top active rugby referees in the world. Nigel is well respected both on and off the field for the person he is and he has a compelling life story. This event one of the first of its kind in Ireland which will give attendees an opportunity to get an insight to the life at the top of officiating world rugby.”

The event will take place in the Celbridge Manor Hotel Celbridge Co Kildare at 8pm, two days before Nigel’s 50th Test match, Ireland v Italy in the 6 Nations.
