The LGFA has suspended its injury fund with immediate effect amid reports that teams intend to train on non-GAA facilities.

This means that, according to the LGFA, any individual who suffers an injury during these sessions will be "personally responsible" for all medical costs incurred, as the GAA public liability insurance is currently suspended.

The GAA has closed all training and playing facilities until 20 July, meaning that the LGFA has also had to cease all group activity until such time as the pitches they use are once more open for use.

The association are not planning for any inter-county action before October.

In a statement released today the LGFA confirmed the management committee of central council have suspended the injury fund from 22 May, amid reports that some clubs plan to commence training on 8 June, when Phase 2 of the easing of the government's Covid-19 restrictions allows for training in small groups.

"This will be the situation until such time that training and playing activity are sanctioned for return by the LGFA. All GAA training and playing facilities are closed until the 20th July," read the statement.

"Should an individual sustain an injury and incur medical costs while taking part in an on-line training session or an individual training program from 22nd May, the individual will be personally responsible for all such costs. The GAA Public Liability Insurance stands suspended until July 20th."

The LGFA noted that return to play protocols are currently being devised by the GAA Covid-19 Advisory group and will be circulated when completed and agreed in June.

It added: "In the meantime we are urging all members to stay vigilant and to stay safe. Central to every decision made is the health and safety of our members and their families."
