It does seem Ms Walshe is at the heart of the Del Boy affair, wonder if she is his pawn or part of the expose.

FAI Board seem to have a similar opinion that Del Boy holds in that they are only subject to the Govt about grants etc., and those matters are properly accounted for, anything and everything else is their private business, what a shower of arrogant dumbos.

Give Del Boy his freedom to go to Court, he deserves it.

Must be complicated to decide if documents are legally privileged or not😐 seem to be adjourning for another 6 weeks to decide if they are privileged or not.... think that's 5 times in High Court to decide if 10 documents are legally privileged or not...a simple google search says " legal privilege " does not apply to Internal Legal Advice only applies to advice from External Legal Advisor

That is literally the case.

However legal position has been and gone. Its political now.

The scruffing around looking for a technicality in process to hide everything behind has begun, then....

Section 778 / 779 mentioned in relation to ODCE investigations into FAI

Sounds serious ....


Meanwhile the person at centre of all these very serious investigations remains on full pay 'gardening leave' ....
A UK newspaper reported in 2015 regarding the Handball €5M that if that happened in UK the person involved would have had to resign instantly....not here though obviously

Media eventually exposed the 5m payment some 18 months after it was paid across, Del Boy produced redacted accounts to show it went into "Buiding A/c", in his bonus package he wanted 2m which was related to success of obtaining 5m.

Surely the forensic accountant now looking at the books without Del Boy in his shell-like, will be able to tell the story of the 5m and crack open so called confidentiality clause with Blatter, doubtless these days FIFA will cooperate in the spirit of openness and transparency.

Interesting to see that behind the scenes the head of the FAI was busily setting up a bonus day for himself directly out of the payoff from FIFA over the Henry handball.

How can that be said to be representing the interests of Irish soccer in any way, shape or form?

Small s, the 5m was reported at the time. The comment 18 months later directly references this.

And you are hinting that something nefarious went on because it was thrown straight at the mortgage.

Its clearly not, which is why he hasn't gotten anything.

Yes, I am alleging something was very wrong about the whole handling of the 5m and it needs to be re-investigated whilst Del Boy is busy gardening at his new gaff, which we don't know yet if he paid for it or FAI have agreed to pay his mortgage.

It's really all totally up in the air BD - eh, don't you agree, nobody really knows yet what Del Boy was up to.

You are not alone in your concerns many were raised at the time internationally not so much in the Irish Media. There were many unanswered questions such as
# why did it take years to be revealed
# why did it not appear in accounts
# why was there so many conflicting reports on the amount + the reasons given for receiving it ..explained differently at various stages ie a loan which was later written off if we did not qualify, a settlement for the handball incident, an ooc settlement .....so what exactly was it & why not reveal at the outset. The confidentiality clause related to the figure involved not the actual payment.
