Statement: Dublin County Board re Eamon Fennell transfer request

The Dublin County Committee last evening considered an application from Eamon Fennell to transfer from OTooles to St Vincents GAA Club. A player who wishes to leave one Club to join another must apply to the County Committee for a transfer. A County Committee has the right, acting within its Bye-Law, to grant or not to grant an application for transfer. The committee refused to grant the transfer application
The Dublin Transfer Byelaw states: ' As the GAA is community centered, based on the allegiance of its members to their local Clubs, the object of which is to promote the Association’s aims at local level, the transfer rules in the Official Guide and this Bye-Law reflect that ethos. A player is considered to always owe allegiance and loyalty to the Club he first legally participated with in Club competition.
The County Committee, when adjudicating on a transfer application, shall give serious consideration to the response of his current Club, and: -
(a) be cognisant of the role played by his current Club in nurturing and developing the player;
(b) consider the potential impact of the transfer of the player on his current Club; and
(c) consider the potential impact of the transfer of the player on the promotion of the Association’s aims in Dublin;
in reaching their determination.
