ATHY RFC have confirmed this afternoon that their insurance issue has been resolved and that they are free to continue their 140 years of providing rugby for the area.
Statement from Athy RFC
“Athy RFC can confirm that we have agreed terms through the IRFU & Aon for insurance cover with Aviva Insurance. We are, therefore, pleased to confirm that this matter has been resolved and that we can continue to focus on developing this successful rugby club for the benefit of our members.
The Executive Committee at Athy RFC also wish to acknowledge the huge volume of support we received from the rugby community as a whole. Our own membership was unwavering in their support, leaving us in no doubt about what a great club we are part of. Rugby players and supporters everywhere were ready to do anything they could to help our club in its hour of need.
To Martin Heydon TD, Minister of State Michael D’Arcy, Leinster Rugby & the IRFU thank you for mobilising quickly when it was needed. To all who tried to find insurance cover for us, especially Wright Insurance Brokers in Carlow – thank you.
