The Report relating to the FAI Governance Review carried out by independent nominees, Aidan Horan, Dr Moling Ryan and Joe O’Leary together with officers of the FAI and of Sport Ireland was released today, Friday the 21st June 2019. The report was published online at 11am and was formally launched at noon today.
The report runs to 133 pages and contains 78 recommendations which were approved in principle by the surviving seven member FAI Board earlier this week. The report will now be considered by the general council of the FAI and will be formally voted on at the 2019 AGM in Trim on Saturday the 27th July when it will require a 2/3rd majority of the 206 eligible voting members before it can be put into motion. The FAI will now conduct a series of Roadshows across the country in the run up to the July AGM.
The Independent Chair of the Review Committee, Aidan Horan together with Donal Conway and Kieran Mulvey, the respective Chairs of the FAI and Sport Ireland spoke at the formal launch.
In a separate but associated announcement, it has been confirmed that FAI Board Member John Earley, Chair of the Underage Committee and Chair of the SFAI, has resigned his FAI position. Following the earlier resignations of Michael Cody and Eddie Murray, this means that there are now just seven surviving FAI Board members.
