The board of the Olympic Council of Ireland has said its members will review a draft independent Deloitte report into corporate governance for "factual accuracies" over the coming days.

And in a statement tonight the board said a separate report into ticketing arrangements for the Olympic Games in Rio will be sealed and sent directly to Judge Carroll Moran, who is conducting a non-statutory inquiry into the controversy that emerged at the games.

"At no point has the executive committee had sight of the report," a statement by acting president Willie O'Brien said.

It was expected this report would be with the judge by November 15.

The committee met for nearly four hours at OCI headquarters in Howth, however members refused to take any questions at its conclusion.

They refused to answer questions about the recent resignations from the board by John Delaney and Kevin Kilty.

In the statement, the board said the Deloitte report was first circulated to members tonight.
