The FAI’s National Football Exhibition has landed in Limerick where it will be on display at the University of Limerick until Sunday, June 30th.
It is open to the public from tomorrow June 13th, a year and two days from the first of four games that will be played at the stadium.
The Exhibition is one of the main supports for the Euro 2020 Championships. It has been created by the FAI, Dublin City Council and the Department of transport, Tourism and Sport.
It was hosted in Sligo and Cork earlier this year and after Limerick will head to Waterford in August, Donegal in September, Dundalk next February, Galway in March and then back to Dublin for the duration of the Championships.
Mick McCarthy was in town for the official opening yesterday and spoke to media following on from Monday night’s win over Gibraltar.
The FAI’s new General Manager for Football Services and Partnerships, Noel Mooney, on six-month secondment from UEFA, was also making one of his first public appearances. It was appropriate that this should be in Limerick where Mooney originally hails from.
He was not speaking publicly about the challenges and investigations currently underway at the FAI but will likely do so soon after the publication of the FAI Sport Ireland Governance Review Group which is expected to be published next Friday, June 21st.
