From 13 May, Sherrard will be responsible for FAI's corporate comms activity, a role that has been vacant for 18 months. He will play a key role in plans for a new stadium, development of a national training academy, the Eircom League of Ireland, and increased funding for grassroots development.

Sherrard spent six years at Ryanair, which is still seeking his replacement. Comms executive Lorna Farren will take over in the interim.
