The chief executive of the FAI John Delaney will step down from his role with immediate effect.
According to RTÉ News, Delaney will leave the role to take up a different position within the association.
Delaney’s decision to leave the role comes after questions were raised over his decision to provide a bridging loan to the association in 2017.
Although the loan was paid back in full, it is believed that questions were raised over its legitimacy.
Delaney will now take an Executive vice president position which will see him handle the operational costs of the Aviva Stadium and other responsibilities including Ireland’s bids to co-host the FIFA World Cup in 2030.
Meanwhile the FAI say a public procurement process will be held in order to fill Delaney’s current position.
