• Paddy McCaul served for ten years as a committee member and then chairman with Athlone Town FC, who won league titles in 1980/81 and 1982/83, and was voted in as chairman of the League of Ireland in 2005, overseeing its merger with the Football Association of Ireland (FAI).
• A hotelier by profession, McCaul has three sons and one daughter, and members of his family have represented Ireland outside of football as a double act of his niece Donna and nephew Joe McCaul competed in the Eurovision Song Contest.
• Taking over the post as FAI president in 2010, McCaul said: "The FAI see the next four or five years as crucial for the ongoing development and progression of the organisation. With our new stadium in Dublin and a nationwide network of football development officers, we look forward to working with all of our partners to increase participation levels across Ireland."
