Donal Conway has been reappointed as the president of the Football Association of Ireland - despite opposition from the Sports Minister and Sports Ireland.
He was the only candidate put before members at today's AGM in Co Meath.
Mr Conway received 134 out of a possible 140 voted.
Five delegates voted against him and one abstained.
The association confirmed Mr Conway had been re-elected:

Mr Conway will hold the role until the 2020 AGM, and indicated he will step down after that.
He told delegates: "If, in the meantime, there were circumstances where it was the right thing for the association that I would step away... I would not hesitate to do that.
"The immediate task next week would be for myself and senior staff to sit down with the new football members to start passing on the knowledge."
Vice president Noel Fitzroy, meanwhile, confirmed that he would not seek re-election to the position.
In an emotional speech, he said he was faced with no alternative but to withdraw from the process.
That left two candidates for the role - Paul Cooke and Gerry McAnaney.
Mr Cooke of Waterford FC was ultimately elected to the role with 80 votes to Mr McAnaney's 57.
