D. Club reviews Application and submits to Central Council

  • The Club you wish to join will be alerted to the fact that you’ve submitted your details.
  • If inaccuracies are noted, the Club can seek an amendment from you.
  • Once the Club is satisfied that your details are correct, the application will be sent to Central Council for processing.


E. Central Council processes Application

  • If all of the information appears to be in order, Central Council will forward the application to all parties for consideration.
  • The Club you are leaving and both Counties will receive an e-mail from Central Council and can either ‘Accept’ or ‘Object’ the application within 10 days.


F. Notification of Decision

  • Both County and Club Secretaries will be notified when a decision has been made.



  • At the earliest, a player cannot play for six days after a transfer is granted in Croke Park.  
  • Once both County Committees are notified of a decision on a transfer application by Central Council, there is a three day period for an Appeal. This period must expire and cannot be expedited. On the expiry of these three days, a player can be registered by his Club and the transfer becomes effective. 
  • All players must be registered three days before a game.  
  • It is important to note that a player cannot apply for registration until after the time for an Appeal against such transfer has elapsed.
