Fergus O’Dowd, the chairman of the Oireachtas sport committee, said it was preparing to write to the FAI, Sport Ireland and the Department of Sport to seek updates on the numerous investigations being carried out into the FAI’s finances and governance.

O’Dowd said among the questions the body had failed to answer was who authorised a misleading press statement in March that claimed the FAI board had been informed of Delaney’s €100,000 loan and repayment in 2017. Delaney later said he informed only two board members about the transaction.

Despite promises that it would answer this question in a follow-up letter after last month’s Oireachtas hearing, the FAI has not done so.

Hackers target FAI data.

"Luckily enough no financial data was accessed, as all receipts, invoices, contracts and cheques are kept securely off-site, in a shoe-box at the back of John Delaney's wardrobe."

Noel Mooney, the interim head of the FAI, says he's "ashamed" of what has happened at the FAI in the last three months but he claims that his past relationship with the association as an employee, should not prevent him from taking on his six-month contract with the embattled body.

And the Limerick native, on secondment to the FAI from his full-time role with UEFA, says he understands why supporters sing anti-FAI songs at matches, even joking "I often sing the song myself when I can," Mooney also claiming that he noted the "staleness" in the FAI resulting from former CEO John Delaney remaining in his post for 15 years.

Limerick native Mooney returned to the FAI in a newly-created position of General Manager for Football Services and Partnerships, the appointment confirmed by the FAI a month ago tomorrow though he only began work, as the effective CEO, at the FAI on June 3.

"I fully understand and I often sing it at matches myself when I can," Mooney said of those anti-FAI chants when he spoke at an public event for the FAI's official League of Ireland podcast in Dublin's Sugar Club last night.

"I understand because what's happened over the last few months, I am angry. I am disappointed and ashamed at how our beautiful game has gone, what has happened has put Irish soccer into a difficult spot.

"When we don't do what we should do, we should be ashamed, it's right that people should talk about it but it's our responsibility to make football the best it can be.

The governance review into the state of the FAI says it is time to 'modernise the make-up and perception of football administration in Ireland.'

Changes to the size and profile of the board and the committees below it are recommended in a document that would shake up the traditional structures of the game here if it is implemented.

The five person group - consisting of three independent Sport Ireland representatives and the FAI's chief operating officer Rea Walshe and board member Niamh O'Donoghue - have looked to address the issue of gender balance, term limits and the roles and responsibilities of board members.

They have called for the board to be increased to 12 members - four of whom would be independently appointed. Within 12 months, they want four members of the 12 to be female with that condition mandatory in two years.

"There is need to clearly signal that involvement in football administration at a national level is not an almost exclusively male preserve," says the report.

That balance is also to be reflected at the levels below the top table.

Significantly, the Review Group acknowledges that an interim board needs to be put in place for the next 12 months in order to enact changes that will have to be voted through by members.

The remaining seven members of the Board are due to step down at the AGM on July 27.

It is proposed that one or two members of that board stand for re-election to sit on that interim committee for the sake of continuity.

The roles of Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer are to be abolished. They were previously held by Michael Cody and Eddie Murray who resigned in the aftermath of a turbulent period for the FAI.

It was instigated by the emergence of a €100,000 bridging loan given to the FAI by ex-CEO John Delaney in 2017.

Delaney is currently sidelined from his role as Executive Vice President.

The report calls for improvements in how the board operates, stating: "The power of the Board is as a collective and not as individuals or groups of individuals"

Review group chair Aidan Horan says in his opening address that there is 'evidence of a breakdown in trust, faith and confidence in the Association.'

The process of collecting submissions and conducting interviews with stakeholders highlights a number of areas where improvement is necessary.

Key recommendations include:

- The FAI should formally assign a qualified person to the role of Company Secretary

- The board should undertake an annual review of its own effectiveness, and that of its committees

- The FAI should implement a comprehensive risk management system

- The FAI Board needs to ensure that a robust culture of 'holding to account' operates and is seen to operate within the organisation.

- It calls for an Executive Performance and Remuneration Committee to assess the work of the CEO

- It highlights that the FAI does not have an internal audit function and should immediately make arrangements for same

- A code of conduct obligations incorporating ethical standards expected should be regularly communicated

- It calls for an indepth review into the operation of any and all joint ventures or significant partnerships including the Aviva Stadium

FAI press conference/presentation underway in Abbotstown with Donal Conway. We are told beforehand that no questions will be taken on a particular 'employee' who is involved in a process. His name isn't even mentioned.
