ST FINIANS SWORDS INJURY INFORMATION
St Finian’s operate many different codes of GAA sports such as Football, Hurling, Camogie and Rounders. While we endeavour to ensure that all players return safely home after training or a match, the reality is that doesn’t always happen, and sometimes players get injured. For each sport in the club, a specific fund or insurance policy is there to provide some reimbursement for medical expenses. In most cases this reimbursement is provided after an injured player has exhausted all other avenues such as Private Medical Insurance and, in all cases, there are set limits to the reimbursement.
Please read through St Finians Summary Guidance documents to familiarise yourself with how these funds and insurance policies work and how to seek reimbursement in the event of an injury. We have also included the official guidance for each Fund or Insurance Policy.
