Have the GAA insurers announced a rebate for the period of time which GAA grounds were closed and all activities suspended?

Will county boards reimburse registration fees, board fees, referee fees etc for the same 3 month period which is effectively half of the playing season? How will clubs deal with membership fees which have mostly all been already collected. Very little talk of any of these issues.

In fairness there has been quite a bit of talk around our own club and county about this. Co Board Fees drastically reduced, invoiced and paid in our case.

The GAA insurance is relevant to ALL counties.

Re the 6 counties. On Weds training is allowed in groups of 10 on a non contact basis.

In the 26 counties. On Weds training is allowed in groups of 15 on a non contact basis.

Neither can happen on GAA property unless the GAA reinstate the insurance scheme.

Insurance is valid from Weds for adults and from Saturday for youth players.

GAA Response in Down - very very worrying .

Down GAA County Squad training in Rostrevor on Thursday past .

Some of the photos and videos  circulating from Kilbroney are shocking from Thursday night.
Covid 19 is a life and death issue GAA activities have been stopped.This is not the same as the end of season training ban etc.
There are sanctions for that but in the case of The Pandemic this is a whole different issue.This is life and death.
What happens if one of these players gets Covid and passes to a grandparent and they die.? Where is the liability ? County Board ? Were they aware of this get together and training of a County Squad ? I find it hard to believe that they don't know.
Are Down GAA Co Board not aware of GAA Covid 18 protocols ?  Are Down County Board aware that GAA suspended all GAA Activity at club,county level , this is to include all games,training and team gatherings at all ages and all grades ?
The Down County Board have now been set a test by being put in this position by unauthorized gathering and training by a group of people , who having shown zero regard towards the welfare of players ,parents and wider society ?
This is a medical and ethical issue not to be compared to the breaching of an off season training ban.
Are teachers allowed to decide they are going to teach a class over 30 on Thursday ? NO. Are Dentists allowed to operate as they see fit ?NO.Are bars allowed to open and have the Senior Club panel in ? NO
The authorities and the GAA  have Covid 19 return to play protocols and rules, are Down above those rules ?
We await to see how Down GAA react to this test ?
If people are in positions of influence and authority and behave irresponsibly against GAA Laws and Government they need to be dealt with.
This is nothing short of a shocking scandal for Down GAA.

Smurfy123 is a Down man. Maybe he's in charge of it all?
The woman in red has the car parked on the slope.

Not sure, but I'd have thought the Covid supervisors have access to all the clubs submissions..

Pretty sure that the system won't know who the Covid supervisors are.  Being involved with our club I know that we have't produced a list of Covid supervisors yet, but I have gone ahead and completed the online questionnaire. 
It says it has gone to the Club Admin, but we aren't sure who that is!  Is it the secretary as the GAA would have their email address?

It's all a bit messy.
