Insurance Issues: Engagement with Insurance Companies
I certainly would not want to be getting into individual clients or to be arguing the case as to whether a claim was eligible. The reason I am raising this today and the reason I asked the Chairman to bring the insurance companies in is relevant to the 2,200 clubs. Some have come to me to ask these questions. What they think they are insured for, and what the Cumann Lúthchleas Gael website says they are insured for, is other than what a master policy document held by senior GAA administrators would say.
I will ask in a way that Mr. Connaughton might be able to answer. One would imagine that there are not too many GAA-type clients among AIG's 500,000 clients in Ireland. Each GAA club is covered individually and individually able to make claims relevant to its policy, which is on the GAA's website and is distributed to each club. Would it be typical that a master copy or other copy be held by the national body and would it differ?
