Former Mason Hayes & Curran chairperson Kevin Hoy has been appointed to the board of Sport Ireland.

Mr Hoy, an experienced solicitor who remains a consultant at the firm, joins the board to fill a legal position. He has been involved with sport in a voluntary capacity for many years and is also active in the wider voluntary sector.

He is one of two new board members alongside Deirdre Mongan, appointed to fill a disability advocate position.

Catherine Martin, minister for tourism, culture, arts, Gaeltacht, sport and media, said: “I am delighted that Deirdre and Kevin have agreed to join the Board of Sport Ireland.

“Their wide experience and skills will be hugely beneficial to Sport Ireland and its ongoing work in the development of Irish sport over the coming years.”

Thomas Byrne, minister of state for sport and physical education, added: “I want to congratulate Deirdre and Kevin on their appointments and I wish them well for their terms on the board.

“They are filling important positions on the Board and I have no doubt that their experience will add enormous value to Sport Ireland’s work for Irish sport.”
