LGFA suspends player injury fund

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association has suspended the association’s Injury Fund with immediate effect.

The move follows reports the LGFA has received that some groups are hiring or using non-GAA facilities to begin training in small groups when Phase 2 of the Covid-19 restrictions start on June 8th.

The LGFA’s Central Council says the suspension will remain in place until such time that training and playing activity are sanctioned for return by the association.

It means that any player who gets injured while training in an online or individual session or programme from May 22nd onwards  will be personally responsible for all costs.

GAA’s Public Liability Insurance already stands suspended until July 20th.

Return to Play protocols are currently being drawn up by the GAA Covid-19 Advisory group and will be circulated to members in June.
