Cork Athletics Registrations & Insurance - January 2018

Registrations & Insurance 2018

insurance image registration image s


As of 6pm today, Wednesday February 7th 2018, forty seven (47) of Cork's fifty four registered clubs now have registered athletes, with a total of 4177 members registered to date. Several clubs have less than the requisite ten (10) members to constitute an Athletics Ireland registered club.


Athletics Ireland Club & Athlete Insurance

A 'Period of Grace' was in place until January 26th, whereby 2017 cover was extended, to allow time for athletes and officials to be re-registered for 2018.  This period has expired, consequently any athlete, coach or official, or any individual acting in any capacity, who remains unregistered, is not covered by Athletics Ireland Insurance for training or competition purposes.

Many coaches and officials are continuing to be actively involved in Athletics, but remain unregistered.

 Unregistered athletes, coaches and/or officials are NOT covered by the Athletics Ireland insurance for any purpose whatsoever, leaving those athletes, officials, coaches and clubs in a precarious position. 

Any club having difficulties registering their athletes should contact Cork Athletics Registrar, John Copithorne 0861713500


2018 Athletics Ireland Registrations are now Due

Clubs are reminded that UNREGISTERED athletes are NOT covered by Athletics Irelands insurance, for ANY purpose, training or competition.

Clubs are urged to register all remaining unregistered personnel without further delay.


Webmaster's Note: I have been 'Banging on' for ages about the Bandon Rugby Club case. The Irish Times reported on the case in April 1997.  Twenty years later, the judgement is still as relevant, and stands out as a warning to the consequences of not registering members of an organisation.  A further related Irish Times article advises clubs to ensure that members are registered.
