Governance in Irish Athletic Boxing Association: Discussion

Mr. John Treacy:

I am glad the Senator asked me that question. At that time, we were funding juniors and developmental people as well. Sport Ireland made a policy decision to let the governing bodies themselves decide this and that the money would go into the high performance budget of the national governing body. That is what happened in the case of all national governing bodies, including boxing. The money we allocated for juniors and developmental people went into the high performance budget. The IABA could, therefore, fund those juniors and developmental people.
