FAI refusal to attend Oireachtas Committee “an insult” – Jonathan O’Brien TD

Sinn Féin Sport Spokesperson Jonathan O’Brien TD has said the FAI’s refusal to attend tomorrow’s Oireachtas Committee to answer questions on what is going on at the organisation “is an insult to every football fan in the country”.

Deputy O’Brien said:

“I am deeply frustrated at the attitude of the FAI in once again refusing to attend and answer the many, many questions that need to be asked and answered. It is an insult to every football fan in the country to hide away at this critical time.

“People have legitimate and urgent questions including the workers at the FAI and the thousands of volunteers. The questions must be publicly answered. The FAI’s reply stated they will attend when issues have been sorted out. That is an undefined period and is unacceptable.

“Anger is growing and understandably so. The future of Irish football is in the balance and the so-called leaders are hiding behind excuses. It is time for answers not excuses.”
