FAI chief operating officer Rea Walshe was appointed to be the main liaison between the ODCE and other bodies investigating corporate governance at the association, despite concerns about a conflict of interest.

Walshe, who previously helped former CEO John Delaney and an honorary secretary with personal legal matters, has been responsible for assisting officers acting for the ODCE with their enquiries since last year.

This was raised as a concern within the FAI, sources told the Sunday Independent.
