“Gender Quotas Are False” – Mary O’Rourke

Written 3 years ago by Newsroom

Sports groups have been warned to hire more women or face funding cuts.

Minister Patrick O’Donovan wants new gender quotas which would mean a third of all board members will be female.

Many organisations like the GAA, FAI and the I-R-F-U will be forced to comply with the move nicknamed ‘The Bonfire of the Blazers’.

But Former Fianna Fáil Minister and Longford Westmeath TD Mary O’Rourke does not think it is a good idea.
