The committee would like to draw your attention to the details of player insurance each season. Birr RFC retains insurance cover for players under the IRFU Compulsory Group Personal Accident Scheme

This scheme covers club players for catastrophic injury only e.g. loss of limb, permanent disablement etc. The policy does not cover loss of earnings, medical expenses, accident and emergency visits or dental repair. It is therefore recommended that all players or parents/guardians of players investigate their insurance options. The club recommends that players are covered by medical insurance from a recognized private medical insurer.

Rugby is a collision sport and regrettably injuries can occur. Birr RFC is committed to providing a positive Rugby environment for all its members. This does not extend to financial support for medical bills.

The compulsory IRFU Player Insurance Scheme costs the Club approximately €2,300 per adult team per annum. That is €115.00 per player p.a. in a match day squad of 20 players.

Players who are in primary or secondary school may be covered by the schools pupil insurance but should check with the schools directly to see if they are.

Additional Top Up cover is available through the IRFU’s broker AON (+353 (0)1 266 6000) or contact your own broker / insurance company for details of additional cover.
