The Joint Committee on Transport, Tourism & Sport will meet tomorrow (Tuesday) at 12 noon in Committee Room 4, Leinster House to discuss matters related to the FAI.
On Wednesday the FAI came before the Committee, and tomorrow, for the third time in less than three weeks Governance will again be a central theme as Sport Ireland return to the Oireachtas.
In addition to representatives from Sport Ireland, the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Mr. Shane Ross TD will also appear as a witness.
Ahead of the meeting, the Chairman of the Joint Committee, Committee Chairman Fergus O’Dowd TD, said: “The Committee has scheduled a meeting with Sport Ireland for the second time in three weeks, and following on from the appearance of the FAI, we hope Sport Ireland will be in a position to update us further.
“The discussion two weeks ago was very insightful, and we expect they will be able to provide answers to the questions which, they did not have information on, at our last meeting. Similarly, the input of Minister Ross is an opportunity we very much look forward to.”
Deputy O’Dowd concluded: “The Committee is determined to build on our work as we explore governance, and issues which have come to light in relation to the FAI.”
