2023 Premier sfc

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.
Playing in West Cork is a huge plus as we know the city teams don't fancy coming past the viaduct.
It will be a shame if clancy and white are out. It will be used as an excuse by the ispini men if nemo beat clon
 
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.
Like we told you last night, there is no rule in Cork stopping players on, around or away from the border from playing with a Cork club but there is a rule stating the first official game you play in Cork ties you to that club and county.

We asked you last night to give us all the information you had and you said you had done so, yet today we find out Johnny was playing in Kerry and under Kerry County Board by laws he was illegal. This is why he was forced to find a Cork club to play for if he wanted to continue playing GAA.

It turns out the drama is actually a non story
 
R&B I think you are wasting your time trying to explain anything to this dude.. He has spent the last 2 days putting umpteen messages into a Cork GAA forum about a boy playing football and revealed only today that it all happened in another county entirely and has nothing at all whatsoever to do with Cork GAA… and despite this been clearly pointed out to him he continues messaging here about players breaking Cork GAA rules but hasn’t given a single example…
 
I would say ye simply don’t understand the rules as they are written that’s fine too ye know best.

Ye have yet to provide me with any screenshot from the rule book or a bye law to prove I’m wrongs

Just to show how seriously Cork GAA take this scenario.
There is specific dispensation in place for a Cork club to allow players from another county to play with their club
In order to by pass the rule of having to have permanent residence in Cork to play with a Cork Club.

Maybe he's concerned if he gives an example you may warn him of degrading players like you stated to me, I have since taken your advice and read the rules. I am not enlightened much and nothing trigers me to change my mind on the rule book, transfers and the so-called 'Parish Rule'. Firstly there is no mention of 'Parish Rule' but there is of Catchment Area' and 'Permanent Residence ' Regarding the latter I am aware of a player who transferred from one club to another while living in a temporary residence all within Cork county and after the transfer went through he went to live in a permanent residence in Co. Limerick. As I stated to you in a former post I am long gone from within club affairs but at the time I can only recall the transfer being approved by the North Cork Juvenile Divisional Board without involvement from County Board. Rule 6.1 referring to the considered allegiance & loyalty to the players first Club I understand has been broken many a time but it's phrased as a consideration and not a compellant. Also it begs the question when did the rule first come into effect?

Didn’t he give a very specific example…
It was for a boy that played under 12 football in Kerry in breach of the Kerry County Boards bye laws. When he gave the details it was blatantly obvious that his example had nothing at all to do with Cork GAA.
I can’t comment on what went on at an unknown time in the past that you are referencing.. I’m not sure how or why you want to take me back there.
Instead of asking me to help you make your point, Maybe you might set it the incident you are referring to, when it took place, the exact rules at the time and explain to us how and when the rules have changed since.

How is the catchment area defined in Cork?
If it’s not the parish boundary then what is it?
