Sure he was a great lad - came to my local soccer club, threw us a lock of footballs and drank 5 pints before heading off into the night led by the ear by his PA.

The more you hear about "finance committees", "audit committees", "external auditors", "internal auditors", "governance"....then you automatically think something is afoot. Some of these people are being paid big money to watch out for irregularities taking place. The big 4 accountancy firms have been found to be coming up short time and time again. Are they in on it, or are they just shite at what they do? Why does financial regulation & oversight never work?

Good to see Troy Parrott coming on for his League debut, for Spurs. A lift among the nonsense, from Delaney and Co.

Leave the well run GAA out of the shit storm of Govt supported sports organisations.
Division 2 Champions and Connacht Champions (Minor)

Luckily the GAA has never got a cent from the Government.

Chairman of Knocknacarra FC Gerry Carroll said the club relies on the FAI to provide a professional development plan for the Galway club which has 900 members - 95% of whom are under 18 years of age.
Mr Carroll said that if the funding is not there to provide a coaching structure for the club, it will stall the standard of coaching.
"They all aspire to be players for Ireland and they want to play for the big clubs in England and the Premiership clubs.
"Under our professional development plan, we have a coaching structure and have 100 coaches in that structure - generally volunteers.
"The FAI provide a professional development plan for us and we try to follow that plan. If the funding isn't there to provide that plan, it will stall our coaching here or the standard of coaching here.
"I hope that it won't impact on us but I expect that it will."

Any truth to the rumours CelticĒs Mikeís Johnstonís Irish lineage is being investigated?i
Very talented player. Would be some addition to the squad.
Has been investigated for a long time. He has played youth for Scotland so cant see him switching. Although stranger things have happened...

If he's interested, all this messing about in the FAI will make up his mind and..... he'll play for Scotland.
