I heard a different slant as to why the intercounty over 40s was done away with. Seemingly it was being treated very very seriously in some counties (possibly far too seriously) and the GAA decided to put a stop to it with a view to a more recreational approach/ alternative which afaik never came about.

That's what I remember about it too . 90% sure this was the reason

52 year old former Kildare player Liam Miley kicked five points including a last minute winner for St Laurences against Sarsfields in the Kildare Reserve C Championship Final in Kilcullen last Saturday. Liam played in the 1982 Senior Championship Final which was also against Sarsfields. On that occasion he played against the late Christy Sweeney. Christy's son Cian lined out against Liam last Saturday.

There is no such thing as Player Insurance something very similar operates but it's not Insurance, called the Player Injury Fund.

Secondly Private Medical Insurance supersedes Player Injury Fund
