Did he try to conceal it ?
Yes - he took out an injunction against the Sunday Times to stop them publishing the story but lost. The legal costs were apparently 50k. Presumably the FAI which is mainly funded by the taxpayer, will pay the legal costs. Why go to those lengths to stop the story if the short term loan was genuinely a well off employee giving a 'digout' to his employer?

Full board approval for the new 'role' says a lot about the state of the board. The ladies teams (some) wear second hand kit, matches have been cancelled due to 'no' money and he has his rent paid (36,000pa), there are pension shortages...these are all questions to be answered. It does'nt matter that it's the FAI it's the same carry on with free money paid through the Gov grants by the taxpayer. Austerity for the ground staff, prawn sandwiches for the bosses. We have been here before.

Our football team sucks we win nothing the fans are the only positive thing about irish football. We have no relevant players we are a joke trawling the hertiage sites looking for grannies to get players. A big fat waste of money we'd be better sponsoring a few young lads from `Brazil maybe adopting them, //

Howsabout payment by results? For every win, "normal" pay for a month for players and staff. For every loss, minimum wage for a month.

Before long you would find a very different team and management. If it also lost every match, it wouldn't be any worse than what's there now.

On the flip side, Ireland's rugby squad, with a far shallower pool to pick from, does infinitely better.
Anyone know why ?

Rednecks around the country on RTE singing Delaney's praises......

They got soccer 'facilities' - divvied out by Delaney from taxpayer's money,
not his own.

( The relevant Govt. department has pumped 50 million of taxpayer's money
into the FAI in recent years )

This country is still a bunch of focking peasants - where sporting/charity gangsters
like Delaney, Pat Hickey and Frank Murphy down in Cork can thrive and flourish.... :sick:

And thats the way they like it, no wonder GO'D and ACI are been stopped from speaking publically. This is an affront to free speech and democracy.

is it libelous to say that the Bosses running Fifa during Sepp Blater's reign in charge were on the take.If so I shall leave this site asap.My post on JD and the goings on were just pointing out to the readers the "type of organizations " that run some aspects of football associations and how corruption is widespread ".If that is libelous I'm packing this forum away for a long time or maybe even never.

John Delaney earned €360,000 plus expenses as chief executive of the FAI.

Still and all, isn't he the perfect employee, helping out his employers with 100k.

Think back to 2008, and how many ex-companies would still be going, if each of their employees had only remortgaged for another 100k and lent it to the boss.
