Child Protection
Child Protection and Best Practice in Archdiocese of Dublin. In keeping with its commitment to best practise in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults the Archdiocese of Dublin has recently introduced a new policy and procedures for the Garda Vetting of staff and volunteers in parishes throughout the Diocese. It is now Diocesan policy that all parish volunteers should have Garda Clearance, and a special office has been set up in the Archbishop's house to assist parishes with this procedure. The Archbishop, parish clergy, members of the parish councils and all who help out in any capacity in the activities in the parish are now requested to complete a Garda Vetting form. There is one person responsible for Garda Vetting in the Archbishop's house who liaises directly with the Garda Vetting office. All information received will be treated with the utmost sensitivity and confidentiality.

Congratulations to Aaron Doran (Inchicore) who got awarded International Player of the year for under 17's Well Done
