Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance Review Group Report for the FAI Board and Sport Ireland: Sport Ireland (17 Jul 2019)

Marc MacSharry: I thank the witnesses for their presentations. I thank Mr. Horan in particular for the excellent work he has done with the governance report. It is difficult, however, to define a governance report. Mr. Horan described it as a means to an end, but I suggest it is a bit more than that; it is an essential prerequisite for any body in receipt of State funds. It is not a journey in that...

Marc MacSharry: I agree.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance Review Group Report for the FAI Board and Sport Ireland: Sport Ireland (17 Jul 2019)

Marc MacSharry: I do not doubt that. I agree that the headline issues are very good things but in real terms, would Mr. Horan prefer not to have been starting from there at all? Let us say, in an ideal world if Mr. Horan was dealing not only with his terms of reference but the Mazars report reviewing the issues of concern, the Grant Thornton report to conduct an internal review of the association's books,...

Marc MacSharry: Yes.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance Review Group Report for the FAI Board and Sport Ireland: Sport Ireland (17 Jul 2019)

Marc MacSharry: I am sure that is the case but, equally, the answer to the question I asked is that in an ideal world Mr. Horan would have preferred to do the report with all of the information.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance Review Group Report for the FAI Board and Sport Ireland: Sport Ireland (17 Jul 2019)

Marc MacSharry: By definition, he was doing it without all of the information. I will come back to that in a moment. I must ask some questions of Mr. Treacy and Mr. Mulvey because I am new to the committee. Did alarm bells not go off each January in Sport Ireland when the phone rang and an organisation with a turnover of €50 million doing such good work in all our communities throughout the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance Review Group Report for the FAI Board and Sport Ireland: Sport Ireland (17 Jul 2019)

Marc MacSharry: How then could we be assured that was the case? I respect and accept that is what Sport Ireland was told, and that it accepted that, but in terms of follow-up, how could Mr. Mulvey be sure the money was spent in that way and that it was not used for twine, for want of a better expression, to keep the lights on?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance Review Group Report for the FAI Board and Sport Ireland: Sport Ireland (17 Jul 2019)
