They are continuing to deliver critical supports for the Sport sector through the exceptionally challenging times, posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which will continue into 2021. I look forward to continuing to working closely with them as we navigate this difficult period”.

The Ministers have also approved the appointment of the following Board members:

  • Ms Olive Loughnane and Mr Roger O’Connor, both of whom are being reappointed for a further term
  • Mr Iognáid Ó Muircheartaigh’s new appointment to the board, which follows a PAS process which concluded earlier this year
