Code of Behaviour

This Code of Behaviour (Underage) complements the Irish Sports Council (ISC) Code of Ethics and Our Games – Our Code, the joint Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport.

An Coiste Stiúrtha Náisiúnta Féile places responsibility on the officers of all participating clubs to ensure that the highest standards of behaviour, practice and conduct required from our young players, officials, coaches, trainers, mentors, supporters, parents/guardians, and clubs is forthcoming. All participating players and those attending John West Féile na nGael and Féile Peil na nÓg are obliged to adhere to and implement the Code of Behaviour when working with underage players.


The organisation of Féile tournaments will be the responsibility of each County Competitions Control Committee (CCC) and will be played in accordance with the general playing rules. Any decisions in relation to the organisation and running of local Féile tournaments and any disciplinary matters arising from the organisation of Féile will be the responsibility of the relevant County CCC.

Give Respect – Get Respect
All participating teams shall adhere to the Respect initiative: Give Respect – Get Respect.

This Respect initiative seeks to ensure that, at a very minimum, our Gaelic Games are
promoted and played in a positive, fair, and enjoyable manner where players, coaches,
spectators and referees Give Respect and Get Respect from each other.
