The GAA, IRFU, FAI and other sporting bodies will face having their government funding cut by as much as 50pc within the next two years, unless they increase the number of women on their boards.

Minister of State for Sport Jack Chambers has revealed that national governing bodies in receipt of taxpayer funding will have to ensure at least 40pc of board members are female by the end of next year.
