The FAI announced overnight, following lengthy negotiations between the association and the Irish women's team, that a resolution to their dispute has been found. It comes less than 48 hours after a press conference where the women's team went public with their grievances.

The women's team claimed this week that they had been treated like 'fifth class citizens' by the FAI.


In a statement, the FAI said that all issues raised by the team had been addressed.

The Football Association of Ireland and the Republic of Ireland Senior Women’s National Team have reached agreement, following mediation talks.

Discussions between both sides came to a successful conclusion earlier this morning, where all ‘Issues to be addressed’, as outlined by the Players, were successfully resolved.

Following the positive outcome to the mediation process the Players confirmed that they will return to training today, in preparation for their international fixture against Slovakia on Monday at Tallaght Stadium.

The Association is pleased that both sides have reached common agreement and a settlement, which allows the two parties to move forward together as one, in the best interests of Irish football.

The PFAI, who were acting on behalf of the women's team in the negotiations, also released a statement.

Several members of the women's team reacted with satisfaction to the resolution.
