FAI respond to criticism from St Pat's
The board of the FAI say they will support the executive in their endeavours to find a resolution to get the League of Ireland season back on track.
The Association issued a statement after St Patrick's Athletic owner Garrett Kelleher reportedly wrote to 3 board members to criticise the leadership of interim CEO Gary Owens and interim deputy CEO Niall Quinn.
In correspondence, Kelleher said the executives had 'failed and failed badly' and that they had lost the confidence of St Patrick's Athletic.
Meanwhile First Division clubs are "increasingly positive" about a return to play in August.
In a joint statement, the nine First Division clubs say they held a "very positive" meeting with Interim FAI CEO Gary Owens, and Interim Deputy CEO Niall Quinn.
It’s believed First Division clubs will accept 40-thousand euro a piece to return to play.
