@Irishref1985 (I don't know if tagging people works on here :P)

Would be interested in how you view the Irish FIFA refs.

Hennessey seems to be the one whom UEFA are most interested in - I watched him in a domestic game a couple of years ago, it was a big derby (perhaps sth like Shamrock - Sligo?) and very little happened to be honest. However, his performance in Belarus - Estonia WCQ this March was honestly a refereeing disaster with a doubtful penalty, SYC, and huge management issues. Perhaps you know how the performance was assessed by UEFA?

I saw Harvey handle an ELQ game in Bulgaria, where IIRC he gave the ultimately-upset home team a penalty, but then missed another one after that. He looked solid but seemed to have the classic British (Isles) problems in international games - not able to increase one's presence when the match becomes more challenging.

Damien MacGraith must be the same AR who was at Collum's side for a few years who is now in the middle, right?

Well in my opinion Neil Doyle is still the best FIFA referee.

Hennessey I would rate above Harvey. Harvey I think has a lot of issues in management and giving a good impression on the pitch in terms of body language and personality. I would be interested to see Hennessey's WCQ game if you have any clips?

And yes that is the same Damien MacGraith.
