Handsome scamp Dublin GAA star Bernard Brogan has been appointed President of the Federation of Irish Sport.

Brogan said at his appointment:

I am delighted to take up the challenge of being President of the Federation and look forward to working closely with the Federation and its members to further spread the message of the true value of sport to Ireland

Is he really suitable for this appointment?

Fair play though, in fairness.
