Written answers (Question to Transport)

Four vacancies arose on the Board of Sport Ireland on 30 September 2019 due to the expiry of the terms of four Board members on that date. I have reappointed two of the Board members for a further term of three years. The remaining two vacancies will be filled following completion of an advertising and selection process conducted in line with the Government's Guidelines on Appointments to State Boards.

My officials are currently engaging with the Public Appointments Service and Sport Ireland on the drafting of a suitable advertisement and I expect an advertisement to be published on the State Boards website shortly.
