Athletes wishing to transfer clubs are reminded that the deadline for the return of fully completed transfer forms is Friday March 24th.  Forms received after that date WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Transfer forms may be downloaded  from the Athletics Ireland website.  

The Procedure on the form MUST be followed.

Fully completed forms should be given/posted to Cork AAI County Board Registrar, John Copithorne, Belgooley, Co. Cork.


  • Do NOT call to John Copithorne's house or workplace.


  • 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.



The Transfer Form MUST be signed in the following order

By the:
•   Member (in the case of a minor by the parent or guardian)
•   New Club
•   Outgoing Club
•   County Board (outgoing club)
•   County Boards (out of county club transfer)
•   County Boards (inter county transfer)

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.
  • It takes longer to gather the signatures for Intercounty transfers, so please allow sufficient time.
