Athletes wishing to transfer clubs are reminded that the deadline for the return of fully completed transfer forms is Wednesday August 24th.  Forms received after that date will NOT be accepted

Transfer forms may be downloaded from the Athletics Ireland website


The Sequence and Procedure on the form MUST be followed

Completed Transfer Forms

Completed forms should be given to Cork AAI County Board Registrar, John Copithorne, or posted to him at John Copithorne, Registrar Cork AAI County Board, Belgooley, Co. Cork.


  • Do NOT call to John Copithorne's house
  • Do NOT send your form by Registered Post, Courier or other form of delivery, except the regular Post
  • Do NOT send your completed form to Athletics Ireland HQ (Dublin), as this will severely affect delivery time, likely missing the deadline.


Closing date is Wednesday August 24th

Completed Transfer Forms may be submitted at any stage, but will not be reviewed by Cork Athletics County Board until after August 24th. However early submission allows time for the return and resubmission of forms that are incomplete or contain an error of some form or other


The Transfer Form MUST be signed in the following order

By the:

•   Member (in the case of a minor, by their parent or guardian)

•   New Club

•   Outgoing Club

•   County Board (outgoing club)

•   Outgoing County Board (for out of county club transfer only)

•   Incoming County Board (for inter-county transfer only)

Incomplete, improperly, or incorrectly completed forms will be rejected



  • Athletes must be in good stead with the outgoing club, i.e. they must not owe any membership  fee, or other arrears, and all club property in their possession must have been returned
  • Athletes whose membership of the outgoing club has lapsed by more than three years do NOT require a transfer, i.e. they are free to change clubs without going through the formal transfer process - they can be simply registered by the incoming club.  Note: Effectively this means that anyone transferring, who has been registered in ANY of the years 2019, 2020, 2021 or 2022 will need to fill out a Transfer Form

Next Transfer Window, following August 24th 2022, will close on March 24th 2023
