Important notice on Child protection

posted 20 Jan 2018, 05:36 by Tourlestrane GAA PRO
To all Club members

In April 2016 it was enacted into legislation that all adults who are involvied in coaching, training, mentoring or in any other capacity with children must be Garda Vetted and have a Child protection course completed.

I ask that managers of or teams ensure that any person involved with their team is compliant with this legislation.

This issue has been brought up at both Gaa conferences this year and unfortunately clubs are not compliant.

There are huge fines for clubs in breach and as of now any person who is not compliant cannot be involved with our children in our club.

Any person that wishes to be Garda Vetted and wishes to complete a Child protection course is asked to contact Colm Corcoran on 086 189 4912.

Thanking You all for your assistance.

Colm Corcoran- Tourlestrane Children’s Officer.
