IMPORTANT MEMORANDUM – INSURANCE

 

The Club participates in the IRFU “Compulsory Group Personal Accident Scheme for Clubs 2012/13 .

The IRFU believes the benefit provided by this scheme is substantially greater than that provided by other Unions or sports bodies but

All individuals involved in Trinity Rugby should be aware

IT STILL REMAINS THE INDIVIDUAL PLAYER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE HE/SHE HAS ADEQUATE INSURANCE COVER

The Compulsory Scheme is intended to cover:

  • serious injury only and whilst the “Severe Injury” benefit at €1.5m may appear substantial, it will not necessarily be sufficient to cover fatal collapse unless a physical accident precedes same.

 

The Compulsory Scheme does not:

  • provide payment of medical expenses or loss of earnings, nor does it cover fatal collapse unless a physical accident precedes same.

 

Separate optional insurance covers are available for all these benefits via Schemes organised by the IRFU’s insurance broker Aon.

 

THE IRFU STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS AVAIL OF THESE

Enquiries relating to additional top-up cover for individuals should be made directly to:

About Us

Dublin University Football Club is the oldest club in the world in continuous existence. Football, which may have come to Ireland from Britain, was originally a peasant pastime based on the parish or village. It was unregulated and violent, and fatal accidents occurred during matches with alarming frequency. One challenge between neighbouring villages in Co. Derry read, ‘for the Late Sleepers to come over on [a certain Sunday] and kick the Early Risers’ - See more
