Funding talks can now start with the Government
New Independent Chairperson of the FAI Roy Barrett says there's a serious job to be done to address what he describes as the association's "very significant failures".
The Goodbody's Managing Director was one of three Indepedent directors named by the FAI last night.
The Central Bank's Director of Human Resources Liz Joyce and Autolease Fleet Management CEO Catherine Guy are the others.
Their appointments could help trigger a government bailout of the FAI, with Sports Minister Shane Ross set to meet UEFA next week.
