It's worth noting for those that wouldn't know - Graham Kelly is the younger brother of Alan Kelly, who was Ireland's top ranked FIFA referee now plying his trade in the MLS and their father is Pat Kelly, who was a senior FIFA referees observer.

One to watch for the future then?  He comes from good stock.

@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.

I like Doyle too, his style is quite elegant, but in general I don't think he had enough to progress past UEFA 2nd personally.

rgfootball doesn't have the game anymore so the best I can do is the Belarus FA's YouTube channel HL.

Penalty - youtu.be/sgWEfSwdJWw?t=94
SYC - youtu.be/sgWEfSwdJWw?t=238

I recalled the SYC being a dive! Shame on me. The SPA assessment was correct in that scene (which you can't fully see here)despite the deep position on the FoP.

The penalty however... to be fair, games between ex-Soviet teams are really difficult, normally a huge amount of rough play and yet rather little dissent which requires a law-enforcer approach from the first whistle, so I wouldn't crucify him or anything especially as a 1990-born.

I think Doyle on top form is good enough for first group. Whether he presented that level often enough is the question, on the whole I agree with you - probably falls between both categories and a top level second group official IMO. A shame he has not been appointed more in recent times in UEFA competitions and a shame he never got a EL GS game (seems unlikely that will happen now) nonetheless he has had a very good international career.

Many thanks for the video clips. SPA certainly seems supportable and I agree with you about the penalty.

It would be good to see another Irish referee have a similar trajectory to Alan Kelly however at present I must admit I don't see any of our current FIFA referees progressing beyond the 2nd group. Harvey and Hennessey could well prove me wrong and I hope they do but I feel they have a long way to go.

It's mad but I think Hennessy is the best of a bad lot.. I know I'm critical a bit, but when you are watching them every week, they don't seem to learn from their mistakes.. He gave three penalties in a Dublin derby tonight and two of them were more than questionable.. he gave the winning one in the 92nd minute, which was probably right..

I actually think Paul McLaughlin and Neil Doyle are good referees, with the latter on his day the best we have.. I can't have Rob Harvey at all.. His arrogance gets me..

Damien MacGraith is the same man who was assistant to William Collum - a much better assistant than referee. Michelle O'Neill is probably the best assistant we have.. Allen Lynch and Emmet Dynan pair with each other a lot.. they ain't bad.. I like Darragh Keegan and Wayne McDonnell as well.. Good assistants..
