Governance in Irish Athletic Boxing Association: Discussion
Insurance is another issue in the accounts. Mr. Kirwan stated earlier that some of the county board and provincial councils have queries as to whether their boxers are insured given the current circumstances. For a number of years, the average premium within the IABA has been about €250,000 per year. That seems very substantial. I have compared organisations of a similar size and membership. In the case of Swim Ireland, which is similar in terms of size and so on, the insurance costs just €65,000. Mr. Carruth might address the following. Is it correct that in 2019, an insurance broker that had previously provided insurance sent a complaint stating it had not been invited to participate in the tender process?
