Jer Bergin will lead IFA until election

IFA Deputy President Tim O’Leary has opted not to continue to carry out the functions of President, because he is a declared candidate in that election.

The Executive Council will meet on Tuesday, January 5, 2016, to decide on the timing for the election of President.

The Con Lucey recommendations will be debated at each of the Association’s 29 County Executives.

An Implementation Committee will be drawn up by the Executive Council to consider the views of the County Executives, and 250 submissions that have been made, as well as any fresh proposals that come from members.

The Implementation Committee will bring these back to the IFA Executive Council for debate, decision and implementation in 2016.

IFA says it is committed to acting on the review carried out by Con Lucey, who was warmly thanked by the Executive Council for quickly completing the Review.
