The FAI board have appointed Paul Cooke to the sub-committee overseeing ongoing investigations and procedures at the association with immediate effect.

Cooke has been nominated unopposed to the vacant position of honorary treasurer and is expected to be confirmed in the role at the upcoming FAI AGM.

The former Waterford United director and CEO of the Irish Daily Star and Sunday Business Post has been a vocal critic of John Delaney in the past, and will join FAI president Donal Conway and board members Niamh O’Donoghue, Eamonn Naughton, Paraic Treanor and Noel Fitzroy on the sub-committee.

Waterford-native Cooke said: "I look forward to working with the Board of the FAI on this sub-committee and I am confident that my business and financial background will be an asset to the processes underway at the FAI."

FAI president Donal Conway added: "Paul Cooke’s experience in the media industry and in business, coupled with his acumen as a chartered accountant, is a valuable addition to our sub-committee."
