Women make up 44% of boards of sports governing bodies


Women now make up an average of 44% of board members across sport governing bodies in Ireland.

Dr Úna May, CEO Sport Ireland, will tell the Public Accounts Committee later today that participation in sports last year returned to pre-pandemic levels, with almost half of the population (47%) engaging in sporting activities.

There was a 3% rise in the number of sporting bodies who say they are fully implementing Sports Ireland’s governance code, she will note, lifting the compliance rate up to 95%.

Dr May will also say that “the FAI have demonstrated that solid progress has been made on its transition to a better governance structure and improved practices”.

“This transition will require ongoing work, resourcing and nurturing,” her opening statement reads.

Last November, the Department of Sports decided that enough progress has been made in that regard and released delayed funding to the FAI.

The department concluded that sufficient progress had also been made in delivering its “firm commitment that remuneration of the Chief Executive will be in line with government pay guidelines”.

Feargal Ó Coigligh, Secretary General, will say €212.9m was spent on sports and recreational over all in 2022, up 3% on 2021.

Sport Ireland received €147.4m of this.
