REFEREE Gregory Walsh took charge of a GAA game last week for the first time since 2012.
One of the top referees in Antrim at the time, Gregory was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy, a condition that enlarged his heart and reduced its working capacity to 15 per cent.
As a consequence he was unable to do anything of a physical nature and had to give up refereeing.
This was a massive setback for a man who - at the time - was refereeing at club, county and National level and was regarded as one of the brightest referees of his time.
