From the Askamore club, Owens has previously officiated in minor (2007) and under-21 (2008) All-Ireland finals, between Cork and Tipperary and Kilkenny and Tipperary, respectively.
He also took charge of this year’s Munster final between Waterford and Tipperary as well as All-Ireland semi-finals in the past two years.
The minor final between Tipperary and Galway will be refereed by Paud O’Dwyer from Carlow.
