Garda Vetting Process

Introduction:

Raheny GAA operates under a "one club" system. All sections of the club (Mens & Boys Football and Hurling, Ladies Gaelic Football and Camogie) are governed by the GAA rules for Garda Vetting. We have outlined the GAA Garda Vetting Process below. If mentors complete the GAA Garda Vetting Process below, they are covered to mentor / coach for all sections. If mentors are Garda vetting through LGFA or Camogie, they are only covered for those organisations. So our recommendation is that all mentors follow process below.

The Garda vetting process is complicated but is a very necessary step for all adults interacting with children under 18 years of age. It will take 2 to 4 weeks minimum for the vetting process to complete.

It is easiest to complete this process on a desktop computer. Several emails will be received so please watch you inbox. Check SPAM filter to ensure they don't get caught there.
