Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Governance Review Group Report for the FAI Board and Sport Ireland: Sport Ireland
Mr. Kieran Mulvey:
As I stated earlier, in anticipation of similar questions from members of the committee, Sport Ireland is in full concurrence with the Minister's statement regarding the presidency of the FAI. We took at face value and on trust the statement made on behalf of the FAI by Donal Conway to the effect that the board of the FAI would step down at the AGM. Our view was that this would transpire. As also stated, there was no suggestion that some of them would step up again. That is not acceptable to us.
