Mulvihill may stay after ’06

“My contract will be up in 2006, but it’s not unknown for people to look for an extension of a contract or to be given an extension,” the 58-year-old Longford-born executive told the Irish Times last Saturday. “I said in an interview last year that I might retire when I reached 60. But that interview was given after a long period in hospital and a long period out of work. When major sickness visits you, it does tend to focus you on thinking of items like that. But thankfully I am now back to full health, so it hasn’t been an issue I have given any thought to. As of now I am just working away and not thinking of retirement.”
Mulvihill, who replaced Sean O Siochain as director general in 1979, has won praise for the way he has worked smoothly with various GAA presidents, whereas the FAI headquarters across the Liffey has seen a succession of chief executives come and go.
