    Hi I'm 22 and recently applied for a transfer from one club to another haven't played in over a year and there not granted it because of my loyalty to my first club and that I was on the team sheet for the seniors. but I never played for them.the reasons I want to transfer to the team I'm looking to go to is I wasn't getting games at previous club and that my brother and 6 cousins and uncle are all involved in the new club. All I want to do is play football and the county board are stopping me from doing that. What should I do any suggestions?

    to the first guy, what could be stopping you is a number of things, maybe starting with the parish rule which states you have to play for the club in the parish where you live.

    as to the new query, again, every single county has their own distinct rules for transfers so you need to give a hint where you might be talking about in order for anyone to try and help.

    many counties have no parish rule

    Really? Wasn't aware of any counties who don't operate on a parish rule other than in towns or cities.

    in Cavan theres no strict parish rule, more a catchment thing from what I gather

    and in Kildare, they havent even that and you can play for a club across the county (and beyond according to a certain high profile case)

    Find out who the secretary of the club you want your child to join and they should take care of everything for you.

    Speak with your county secretary (or a knowledgeable club secretary) to be absolutely sure. Inter county transfers are necessary at adult level....I'm not sure about juvenile. The process is straightforward in any case.

    Just sign up with the new club. You won't need a transfer. I moved from Kerry to meath last year. Signed up last week with the local gaa club and it wasn't a problem.

    thanks for the reply.. just wondering if I need to gather up evidence of new address ie utility bills etc
    Or is it just a matter of filling in transfer form or what other info do I need to supply

    Really is it that simple . My new residence is only a 15 mile move which means the clubs are neighbouring clubs but in different counties...

    Unless he's a county star which is highly unlikely after not playing for 4 years then you don't need to worry about a transfer
