Despite our small numbers, under-age football has always been the platform from which we have built or successful adult teams.

The Club is delighted to have Cormac O’Neill installed as coaching officer. Cormac will be working to ensure that boys and girls of Allihies parish are given every opportunity to develop their skills and play Gaelic Football.

The Club follows all guidelines as noted in GAA Code of Best Practice when working with underage players. More details can be found on the GAA Website.  We look forward to implementing the new GAA guidelines for online coaching of children.

  • Our Designated Liaison Officer (DLP) is Maureen O’Sullivan.
  • Our Children’s Officer is Padraig O’Sullivan 

The GAA has a long established principle of vetting any person who, on our behalf, works with children or vulnerable adults in our Association. This principle is enshrined in rule through our Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport and has become part of the overall recruitment and selection process for those who wish to work with us in the GAA, in a voluntary or paid role. Garda vetting can also now be done on-line with the new e-vetting service. Details on Garda Vetting Process is available here
