All volunteers in the juvenile section of our club are garda vetted. If you are interested in volunteering, please read the below instructions on the GAA Vetting System

GAA Vetting System

You must in the first instance complete the GAA E-Vetting ID Form attached. This the only form that you are compelled to print out in hard copy and you must ensure that the completed form is presented to Aideen Gurrin, Club Child Welfare Administrator accompanied by your ID documents. Aideen will verify this by signing and retaining the ID Form and verification documentation that you bring along to her. Once you complete this Form contact Aideen to arrange to meet.

Following completion of the initial process you will then be directed to  where the GAA on-line E-Vetting Application Form is available to download.

Once you complete the GAA on-line E-Vetting Application Form and the conditions therein the information provided is forwarded to the NVB by the GAA and you will receive an on-line NVB Vetting Form to complete. This is sent to you via your email by the NVB. Complete and return the form on-line to the NVB.

The GAA authorised liaison person will receive your on-line completed application from the NVB, will review it and return it to the National Vetting Bureau for processing. The NVB will also inform you that the GAA has been forwarded the vetting ‘disclosure’.

The National Vetting Bureau processes the application and having completed this task sends a vetting disclosure to the GAA with a nil disclosure or a disclosure of convictions and or prosecutions. The GAA reviews the disclosure and makes a decision. You will then receive a GAA vetting acceptance letter and our Club Secretary will also receive a copy of the acceptance letter so as to enable the club confirm that all members working with children or vulnerable persons have been vetted.

Applicants may request a copy of their disclosure from the GAA

Should consideration be given to refusing an application this is discussed directly with the applicant who may appeal any such decision and no discussion takes place with the applicants Club without their permission or until all processes relating to the application have been exhausted.
