I don’t want to sound like a broken record or even say “I told you so” but mouth-guards are now mandatory for ALL players in all age grades, in all Gaelic football practice sessions and games.


  1. Gaelic footballers in all age grades must wear a mouth-guard from January 1st 2014
  2. It is the responsibility of each individual player to use a mouthguard
  3. A properly fitted mouthguard is the best available protective device for reducing the incidence and severity of sports-related dental injuries
  4. Players can be sent-off in a game for not wearing a mouthguard
  5. Players will not be covered under the GAA player injury scheme if they don’t comply with the mouthguard rule
  6. No Mouthguard? No Game


Can all players please ensure they wear a mouth-guard at all training sessions and competitive matches.

Thank You.
