Delaney confirms pay cut

FAI chief executive John Delaney has announced that he will take a voluntary 10 per cent pay cut on his salary.

Delaney currently earns €400,000 per annum but under the new terms he’s new wages will be €360,000 per annum.

The under pressure executive made the announcement at the FAI’s AGM in Letterkenny yesterday

This latest cut is the second in 12 months for Delaney who last year took a 7.2 per cent drop in his salary and follows on from a number of high profile departures in the last few years.

Packie Bonner was let go as technical director in late 2010, while Wim Koevermans left his post as international high performance director last month.

Koevermans was followed out the exit door by Eoin Hand, whose contract as football support services manager is not being renewed while Michael Lynham has also left his post as children’s officer.

In 2011, staff numbers at the FAI dropped from 179 to 173.
