Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Governance and Funding of Football Association of Ireland: Discussion
What we have always said is that we want a fresh start here. We want new people in here who do not have a previous association with the board. That is why we had difficulty previously with people who were appointed to positions who we knew were very much immersed in the FAI previously. Had our concerns been taken on board earlier, I suspect that we would be further along the road in terms of trying to reach a recovery here. They were not taken on board and we are here now at the end of the year in this almighty mess. That is something that is very frustrating.
