Feighan would welcome Delaney’s resignation from FAI

A Roscommon senator has welcomed the news that John Delaney looks set to stand down as a executive vice-president of the FAI.

The Sunday Times reports that the former chief executive spent almost €40,000 on his work credit card in the last six months of 2016.

On Wednesday, Mr Delaney, on legal advice, refused to answer questions on a €100,000 loan he gave the FAI in April 2017 at an Oireachtas sports committee meeting.

It’s also being widely reported today that Mr Delaney has told friends that he will be stepping down from his position as FAI executive vice-president.

While there is no suggestion of wrongdoing by Mr Delaney, Frank Feighan, a member of the Oireachtas sports committee, says his departure would be welcome.
