An Coiste Bainisti made a decision that all players who seek to receive a sanction to the North American, New York or Canadian County Board areas must obtain insurance cover from the GAA before a sanction can be granted.
This insurance cover will cost €40 and sanctions will not be processed going forward unless this insurance has been purchased, and receipt of purchase is submitted with a sanction application
Therefore, players who wish to receive a sanction to the NACB area, New York or Canada (or a Weekend Authorization in the case of New York) will need to purchase their sanction insurance at www.gaa.ie/sanctioninsurance where the €40 fee can be paid by Laser, Visa or Mastercard. After completion the player will receive a receipt by email. If the Sanction request is submitted by post, this receipt must be printed out and attached to the request; alternatively if the sanction is submitted by email this receipt must accompany the sanction form.
Where an individual is not in a position to register online, Postal or Money Orders to the value of €40 can be attached to postal requests.
