Shane Ross Calls For John Delaney's Pay-Off Details To Be Disclosed

Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross, has called for the FAI to disclose details of John Delaney's severance package from the association.

It was announced late on Saturday night that Delaney, who had been on gardening leave since April 15th, had resigned from his post as executive vice-president.

In a short statement, it was said that the resignation was made following "talks between the parties" and that the FAI "will fulfil certain notice and pension obligations as agreed between the parties".

Speaking to RTÉ on Sunday, Minister Ross said:

"The FAI is continuing again to shroud these contracts in mystery. We don't know what the original contract said, so we don't know what sort of payoff is going [to John Delaney].

"We have an interest in that. We need to know whether government funds are being used for this. They should release those figures. It's a bit absurd after all the controversy that we shouldn't know exactly what the pay-off is."
