The FAI, in partnership with Sport Ireland, recently established a Governance Review Group to review the existing governance arrangements within the FAI and to consider and propose a governance framework for the FAI which will support the Board and the organisation in achieving and observing good governance.

Chaired by Sport Ireland nominee Aidan Horan, the Group also includes independent members Dr Moling Ryan and Joe O’Leary along with FAI representatives Rea Walshe and Niamh O’Donoghue.

The Group is actively working on the functions within its terms of reference and remains on course to deliver an interim report in the middle of June.

Chairperson Aidan Horan said: "We very much welcome the detailed submissions we have already received from many individuals and groups with an interest in Irish football. We would like to remind all interested parties yet to participate in this process that the closing date for submissions is May 20th. We can confirm again that all submissions will feed into our deliberations as we progress our work. We are confident that we will have an interim report on schedule by June 14th."

The Governance Review Group wrote to FAI members, sponsors and key stakeholders in Irish football inviting them to submit their ideas on the future of the game.

The Professional Footballers’ Association of Ireland and members of the public have also been invited to submit their ideas on the future governance of the Association via email to
