President of the OFI, Sarah Keane is one one that has extra expertise main a brand new wave of sporting our bodies than anybody having overseen and led each the reformed Olympic Federation in addition to Swim Eire and Treacy feels she is somebody that the brand new FAI board members can look to go steerage.
