The Joint Committee on Transport, Tourism & Sport has welcomed the publication of the Report of the Governance Review Group established by Sport Ireland & the FAI to develop reform proposals for the FAI.

The Committee will examine this report, its findings and recommendations, and the requirement for fundamental change and reform with a view to improving better and more effective governance structures within the FAI.

The Chairman of the Joint Committee, Committee Chairman Fergus O’Dowd TD, said: “The Committee welcomes the publication of the report which follows on from the work of the Committee members who helped to shine a light on governance within the FAI.

Deputy O’Dowd added: “The committee will hold a further public meeting with Sport Ireland within the next month in relation to governance and oversight maters associated with the FAI. We hope publication of this report and actions arising will lead to a new era for the FAI.”
