About Us - Membership

Bandon GAA Club Membership

Volunteers are the life and soul of every GAA Club. The GAA is unrivalled in terms of the number of volunteers that provide endless hours of service to the Association’s many GAA Clubs. Throughout the world, GAA volunteers undertake the administration of clubs, coaching of teams, washing of jerseys, the lining of playing pitches, the transportation of players to and from games, the organisation of fundraising initiatives in addition to performing a host of other specialised tasks. Without volunteers, clubs and the GAA cannot function. Being involved in the GAA gives a sense of fulfillment which is unrivaled. It brings membership of the biggest club in Ireland, puts one right at the heart of Irish culture and provides a pastime for every member of the family. Club membership is open to Adult Players, Adult Non-Players, Juvenile Players and Families. New Members are always welcome. By becoming a member, you accept the club’s CODE OF BEHAVIOUR and agree to abide by the rules of Cumann Lúthchleas Gael.
