A lifelong motorsport fan, law graduate of University of Limerick and solicitor, Niall practices sports governance law and advises clients nationwide throughout Ireland.
Commenting on his appointment Niall said: “I am honoured to sit as one of the Judges on the panel for a four year term and hope to use my national sports governance experience on this newly formed International Court.”
Motorsport Ireland President John Naylor said: “To have someone from Ireland appointed to the CCAP is a tremendous achievement. Niall’s professionalism and passion for the sport is second to none and I am delighted he will be an integral part of this new era in Formula One. We wish him every success.”
