Registrations 2021 

Reminder that registrations for 2021 are now open. Anyone who registered online in 2020 will get a reminder. Senior players are strongly urged to take out their own personal insurance, and parents are advised to insure their children through the school insurance scheme, which provides excellent 24 hour insurance. Remember there is no GAA Insurance Policy. It is a GAA Injury Benefit Fund. The Injury Fund does not seek to fully compensate but to supplement other covers such as Private Health Insurance, National Health Insurance, Personal Accident Cover, Employment benefit covers, Income Payment protection covers. The playing of our national games involves the risk of Injury and it is each individual registered player’s responsibility to familiarize themselves with the terms and benefits of the GAA Injury Benefit Fund. The full policy may be accessed on under Resources and Links, and all players and parents are urged to read it! All paid up members must be registered with the GAA before end of March 2021and this is a huge job at the beginning of each year, especially this year as the GAA have introduced a new system which takes a lot of time to become familiar with. Our juvenile secretary, Sharon Shiels, spends endless hours making sure each juvenile and family are correctly on the system, while our PRO Fiona Burke, secretary Agnes Clarke and registrar Micheál Gargan look after players and adults.
