OAHC Carol Metchette was awarded Honorary Life Membership by Ireland Hockey. This highly esteemed award was presented at the Irish Hockey Association AGM.
Carol has become one of the world’s top hockey umpires. With an incredibly decorated umpiring career, Carol has umpired in two Olympic games, a World Cup and Champions Trophies. As an FIH rule, in 2012 Carol transitioned from an international on-pitch umpire to an official video referral umpire. Carol will attend her third Olympic games later this Summer in Rio.
Congratulations Carol on this prestigious award.
