FAI To Address Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct And Homophobic Abuse In Press Briefing Today

Some of the allegations centre around the conduct of particular coaches in the 1990s during the all-female FÁS course in Leixlip.

Other potential victims of alleged misconduct within the FAI in the 1990s are being encouraged to come forward.

A number of former international players and trainees claim they were subject to unwanted sexual advances, inappropriate relationships, and homophobic abuse by FAI coaches over 25 years ago.

The details have been uncovered as part of a two-year investigation by RTÉ and the Sunday Independent.

The women involved have since described it as "systematic and calculated abuse", and say the matter now lies with Gardaí.

Some of the allegations centre around the conduct of particular coaches in the 1990s during the all-female FÁS course in Leixlip and while on international duty for Ireland.

Sunday Independent Journalist Mark Tighe will discuss the allegations in more detail on this morning's Kildare Today at around 10.10am.
