In response to Cycling Ireland’s statement regarding board developments (which can be found here), Sport Ireland Chief Executive Dr Una May said: “Sport Ireland is pleased to see progress made by Cycling Ireland in addressing the recent issues. In particular, the commitment to implementing all of the recommendations included in the recent audit commissioned by Sport Ireland, is vitally important as the organisation looks to regain stability.

“There has been good progress made in this regard. Another positive step for Cycling Ireland is the achievement of gender balance on its board, a key tenant of the recently published Sports Action Plan. We look forward to meeting with the new chair of the Cycling Ireland as soon as possible. Sport Ireland continues to provide ongoing advice and support to Cycling Ireland, and will work closely with all members of the board and executive in the ongoing development of the sport at all levels.”
