Vetting Process in Oranmore Maree One Club


This article describes the vetting process in Oranmore Maree One Club which comprises

  • Oranmore Maree GAA Club,
  • Oranmore Maree Camogie Club &
  • Naomh Mhuire Ladies Gaelic Football Club.

Please note that an agreement between the GAA, LGFA and Camogie permits each of the Gaelic
Games Associations to recognise the vetting carried out by each other. In other words, if you are
currently vetted for any one of the three associations, then this is recognised by the others and you
do not need to complete separate vetting.

All vetting is now for three years only so anyone who completed their vetting more than three years
ago needs to renew their vetting by completing the vetting process again.

What is vetting and who needs to be vetted?

 Vetting is a criminal background check conducted in respect of any person who is carrying out work or activity, a necessary and regular part of which consists mainly of the person having access to, or contact with, children or vulnerable persons.

  • Anyone involved in coaching, managing or training teams that contain players under the age of 18 needs to be vetted. Anyone organising or officiating at underage games also needs to be vetted.
  • It is an offence to work with children or vulnerable persons in the Gaelic Athletic Association, the Camogie Association or the Ladies Gaelic Football Association without having satisfactorily completed the vetting process. It is also a breach of the rules if a person is working with children or vulnerable adults on behalf of these Associations and have not been vetted.

Therefore, it is essential that everyone involved in Oranmore Maree One Club understands the role of vetting and their responsibility to get themselves vetted if they are involved in the manner
described above.

Failure to do so leaves the club in breach of the law.

What do you need to get started?

 Download E-Vetting ID Form

The Parent/Guardian Consent Form is required - if the person being vetted is aged 16 or 17. Download it from here.

Copy of identification required for each applicant.

See section 3 and 4 of the E-Vetting ID Form for details of the documents of ID that you need.


How do you get vetted?

Step 1 - Provide your details

Complete the E-Vetting ID Form.

Please note - if you are aged 16 or 17, you must enter your parent/guardian’s email address and contact phone number in the form.

Make copies of the forms of ID you will use to verify your identity.

It is recommended that you provide a photographic ID and a document with proof of address in the past six months.

Step 2 - Verify your identity

You need to verify your identity to the Club Children’s Officer by providing him/her with the E-Vetting ID Form and your ID forms.

You can do this in person or you scan the documents and email them to the Children's Officer. The email address to use is at the bottom of this article.

If you are 16 or 17, also provide him/her with the Parent/Guardian Consent Form.

The Children’s Officer will retain your E-Vetting ID Form and if you are aged 16 or 17, the Parent/Guardian Consent Form.

The Children’s Officer will verify your ID forms. You have a choice at this stage regarding your ID forms.

You can opt to have the Children’s Officer retain your ID Forms.

Alternatively, you can choose to scan and attach copies of your ID forms in Step 3 of the process.

If you opt to have the children's Officer retain your ID forms, she/he will keep these until the vetting process is complete and then destroy them.


Step 3 - Complete the GAA/Camogie/LGFA E-Vetting Application Form

Complete the online E-Vetting Application Form   (  https://public.flowforma.com/?token=GAA-eVetting )


If you have opted for the Children’s Officer to retain your ID forms, answer Yes to the ‘Documentation Furnished?’ question and No to the ‘Documentation scanned and attached?’ question.

If you are uploading your ID forms, answer No to the ‘Documentation Furnished?’ question and Yes to the ‘Documentation scanned and attached?’ question and upload scanned copies or photos of the ID you presented to the Children’s Officer.

Step 4 Complete the National Vetting Bureau E-Vetting Application

You will receive an email from the National Vetting Bureau (NVB) of An Garda Siochana with a link to an online vetting application form. Complete and submit this form.

You will be asked to provide a list of all addresses in which you have lived since birth.

It is useful to provide an Eircode for all Irish addresses.

Step 5  - Issuing of the NVB Vetting Disclosure

The NVB will process your application and issue a vetting disclosure to the GAA/Camogie/LGFA.

The GAA/Camogie/LGFA will review this and make a decision on the acceptability of your vetting application.

If your application is accepted, the Club Secretary will be contacted to inform the club that you have been vetted.

The Club Secretary will contact the Children’s Officer to let him/her that the process is complete and he will destroy your ID documents if you provided them to him/her in Step 2.

If there is an issue with your application, the NVB will contact you directly and no communication will take place with the club until the process has been fully completed.

Once you have completed the vetting process, please send the Garda vetting reference number to the children’s officer.
