Your parents bring you to the nursery of any club handy/huge/great can be anywhere. But they usually are from the district or nearest local schools. But you can join any club you like.

There must have been some surprise at the Kilmacud Crokes nursery when Paul Curran's parents landed with him from Thomas Davis nursery after twenty years of playing for them or at Vincents when Eamon Fennel landed in to U6's training after taking a year out......

Yeah transfers happen sometimes.

Mostly they're not contested at all but some high profile ones have been in the past.
