A court filing has revealed that records the former Football Association of Ireland chief executive John Delaney is trying to keep from a criminal investigation include hundreds of email exchanges with FAI executives who worked on his personal business ventures and divorce case.

The High Court reserved judgment last month on an application from the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE) to access 1,123 emails and a small batch of hard-copy records seized from the FAI headquarters in February 2020. Delaney claims the records are legally privileged.
