Athletics Ireland Event Permits
Three (3) months notice is required for all event permits/licences
All athletic fixtures require an Athletics Ireland licence/permit - Permits should to be applied for at least 3 months in advance of the event, and require approval by the County Board.
All permit applications must be made by, or through an Athletics Ireland member club.
The Permit/Licence application forms should be posted to
Anne Murray, Hon Secretary, Cork Athletics, Dromina, Charleville, Co. Cork.
Forms should be fully completed, and be accompanied by the appropriate fee, as per the application form.
The form should NOT be sent directly to Athletics Ireland headquarter, in Santry, Dublin - this will only result in delay in approval of the application, as the application will be returned to Cork Athletics for approval.
Road events must be measured, to IAAF standards, by an Athletics Ireland accredited measurer. The measurement certificate is valid for five (5) years, unless the course changes, be intention, or by virtue of road misalignment. List of accredited Athletics Ireland Measurers
Events organised directly by Athletics Clubs are normally covered by Athletics Ireland's insurance policy, however events organised by other bodies must provide documentary evidence of their insurance cover, when making the application.
Please ensure that events you participate in have a valid Athletics Ireland Permit.
