Player Welfare at Innisfails GAA Club
The GAA and Ladies Board have an injury scheme/fund which is funded entirely from Club, GAA and/or Ladies Board funds. The scheme/fund are NOT an Insurance cover and do not seek to compensate fully for injury, rather lessen the hardship to players and officials. The scheme/fund supplement other schemes/insurance cover where applicable e.g. VHI, Aviva. These should always be leveraged in the first instance.
Full details of the protections provided by each can be found:
