Child Welfare

The Juvenile section of the Garda GAA Club, Westmantown Gaels strives to uphold the best standards of Child Protection.

A central facet of this is the Garda Vetting Process and it must be completed by all mentors of underage teams in the club as per Child Protection Guidelines.
Completed forms should be placed in the Garda Westmanstown Gaels post tray in the reception area of the Westmanstown Sports Complex  in a sealed envelope addressed to the Children's Officer Shauna Murphy.

Shauna Murphy can be contacted at 01 440 4200 or at for any queries or questions regarding Garda Vetting and Child Protection.
