The world keeps turning and with the Republic of Ireland back in Euro 2020 Qualifier action next Friday and Monday, there were sponsorship engagements for the FAI to fulfil over the weekend.
One of those was the launch of the new team suit from sponsors Benetti Menswear which took place at the Aviva Stadium.
Benetti is the official tailor to the FAI and were also part sponsors of RTÉ’s TV coverage from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Shane Duffy, Matt Doherty and Mick McCarthy were made available to media after the photographs were taken pitchside.
With maximum points from the two games so far, the FAI will hope for some relief from the front page coverage they have been getting since the first game in the group stage back in March when John Delaney was still the CEO.
It has been a tumultuous period since then but a trip to Denmark and then a home tie against Gibraltar gives the opportunity to get football on the pitch back at the top of the agenda, even if only for 90 minutes at a time.
