Solicitor Rea Walshe appointed interim CEO of the Football Association of Ireland
Solicitor Rea Walshe has been appointed interim CEO of the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) following the exit of John Delaney.
Ms Walshe, a qualified solicitor who studied law at University College Cork (UCC), joined the FAI in 2014 and was named COO in February.
She had not yet taken up that role when she was named interim CEO by the Board following a review of its senior management structure.
Ms Walshe has now been named by the Irish Independent as a possible contender for permanent appointment to the top role.
Mr Delaney, the former CEO, will take up a new role within the FAI as executive vice-president.
