Joint Committee on Tourism, Culture, Arts, Sport And Media
Governance in Irish Athletic Boxing Association: Discussion
I welcome the witnesses to the committee. Mr. Kirwan said in his opening statement that the IABA is a volunteer-led organisation and has been for a long time. Much of today's discourse has focused on finding the balance between the volunteer-led side and the high performance side. I refer to overall expenditure, and the audited accounts for 2019, which amounted to €3.3 million. How much of that was used to support boxers and how many boxers were supported financially during that period?
