Governance Review Group Report for the FAI Board and Sport Ireland: Sport Ireland
That may well have given cover for this. I agree with Sport Ireland with regard to this. The witnesses have just told us how difficult it was to get a forensic accountant because of the risk of reputational risk. We know its own report is due in September and that a serious review by the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement is under way. That brings with it reputational risk, particularly if it involves somebody who is the subject of that, because that person was on the board, potentially being in front of the courts. How will that help the FAI to re-establish trust and calm an organisation towards focusing on a more solid governance arrangement?
