IFA gag on Wells lifted
Another nail has been hammered into the casket of the floundering Irish FA leadership.
Sacked former chief executive Howard Wells has been cleared to give evidence to the Government-ordered Sport NI inquiry into his controversial dismissal. The significance of the move is that it follows the lifting of a confidentiality clause imposed on HIM by the IFA.
Until now, it has always been claimed by the IFA that it was they who were prevented from speaking about the estimated £400,000 settlement of the Wells case.
Now it emerges it was Wells who was bound by confidentiality and not the IFA.
