The board of the FAI has opted to refer a report from global auditing and consulting group Mazars to An Garda Síochána and the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE).

Mazars was commissioned by the FAI to look into matters of concern and has completed the long-awaited report.

In a brief statement, the FAI said it was the "appropriate" course of action to hand the details over to the relevant arms of the State. Legal advice guided their decision.
