Garda Vetting Procedure

All volunteers with Togher Athletics Club are required to go through a Garda Vetting Process.  The Child Welfare Officer in Togher AC is Barry O’Connell. Please contact Barry at if you have any questions about the Garda Vetting Procedure. Guidelines for the process are detailed below.

The National Vetting Bureau (Children & Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 – 2016 (NVBA) commenced on 29th April 2016 and the Act provides a legislative basis for the mandatory vetting of persons who wish to undertake certain activities relating to children or vulnerable persons. Vetting is provided to Athletics Ireland (AAI) by the National Vetting Bureau.  All volunteers/staff who have regular access to children or vulnerable adults must be vetted as per the National Vetting Bureau Acts 2012 – 2016.

For the AAI eVetting Procedure:
Step 1:
Complete the AAI eVetting Invitation form, sign it, present original ID’s with photocopies to the Club Children’s Officer, Barry O’Connell, for validation. Then post your completed eVetting Invitation form along with photocopies of the ID used, to Kieran Stout, Athletics Ireland, 19 Northwood Court, Northwood Business Campus, Santry, Dublin 9. This form contains the legal declarations required for an eVetting invitation which will be subsequently sent to you by email to you from athletics Ireland. The reason for this is that your signature is required to authorise the eVetting process.

Step 2: Once your completed form is received, Athletics Ireland will then send you an e-mail  inviting you to complete the online eVetting Application Form.

Contact Barry on if you have any questions about the procedure or see the AAI guidelines HERE.
