IT’A AS you were as the Colleges FAI (CFAI) members re-elected the
outgoing committee enbloc to serve another term at their recent AGM
held virtually due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.

CFAI: Chairman Paul Walsh.

Chairman Paul Walsh had little on field activity to report after
successive lockdowns in October and again after Christmas forced the
2020-21 Colleges and Universities Football season to be shelved.

However, Walsh sounded an optimistic note and was hopeful that normal
competitions can resume in the new season.

 “Much work has been put into ensuring the safe return to campus for
students and staff and some measures are likely to last, even if new
variants of the disease fail to materialise.

 “Colleges may not be in a position to provide much clarity around
sport just yet but as the roll out of the vaccine programme picks up
pace everything will depend on the advice of the National Public
Health Emergency Team (Nphet).

 “We are hopeful that restrictions will be relaxed to near pre
Covid-19 levels by the return of students in the autumn and we can
resume out competitions.”

 The meeting also considered a document on a proposed restructuring of
football in the Third Level area and it was agreed that talks should
continue with their counterparts in the Irish Universities Football

Honorary Life membership was awarded to former CFAI chairman Padraig
Carney and to Richie O’Hara formerly of Athlone IT who played a
prominent role in the Irish Technical Colleges FA which later became
the CFAI.
