2023 Premier sfc

I have posted the information Johnnie lived in county cork but played gaa in county Kerry which was very close to his home but his permanent residence was county cork
He played in county Kerry for a period underage after under 12 but by rule 6.3 you must play in the county and moved to a club in Cork the county of his residence.

Cork bye law 32 refers directly back to GAA Rule 6.3 and defines first club being within in the county of your permanent residence.

It also states that Catchment Area (which may be determined by references to parishes) are subjected to county boundaries.
 
Word from down west is Clonakilty have big injury concerns ahead of Nemo game on Saturday - 2 key inter county footballers injured playing Junior hurling while Clancy did his ankle badly at start of Castlehaven game - not ideal prep - they won't ever get a better chance to take Nemos scalp, game on in West Cork & Nemos c'ship form is probably the poorset it's been in years.

Thank you for finally providing some details.
Pity you didn’t say it was county Kerry at the outset you were talking about. This is a Cork forum obviously.
The player you referred to was trying to play football in county Kerry and under Kerry bye laws he had no entitlement to register as a player there.
Kerry have a very different approach which explains the outcome in the case you referenced
Unlike Cork, In Kerry you can only join the club in the parish in which you permanently reside unless you live in an open area (an area or parish with no club or more than one club). They have a very strict parish rule.
If you can’t prove permanent residence in a Kerry parish you can’t join the club in that parish.. Cork bye laws are very different.
To summarize, that boy who lives in Cork and totally contrary to the clear rules of Co Kerry he tried to play football in a Kerry parish even though he doesn’t live in. Yerra, they sent him back to Cork

Yea 100% but if the scenario was reversed he wouldn’t be aloud play in Cork also ave would have to go back to Kerry.

But there is an exception to the rule do you know it?

Nope..
In Cork you are “unfettered”until you play U12.
Once you play one game at U12, this is your “first club” and the parish rule applies going forwards.
Sure don’t Cork have Limerick lads playing with them.
Don’t Kilkenny have Waterford lads playing with em.
Sure isn’t there one club in Cork whose parishes pitch and grounds are in Co Tipperary. etc etc etc

You are right “ unfettered” within the county but not across county bounds
But the rule clearly states for your first club legally after under 12 you must reside in the county Cork to play for a Cork Club.

But you can be sure this rule is being broken and in a lot of cases people don’t know they are breaking the rule

I’m sure there is more exceptions to the rule than the one I’m aware of.
