FAI chief executive John Delaney has claimed that an All-Ireland League is a possibility, but only if clubs from both sides of the border are in favour of it.
The ongoing success of the Setanta Sports Cup has led to suggestions that an All-Ireland League could happen and Delaney admitted that such a venture would be supported by the FAI if the clubs want it.
Delaney said: “My view in life is do what the members want. If the clubs want that, then we’ll look at it. But it much be clubs from both sides of the border.
“I think in life you have to crawl, walk run. I know the talk of an all island league was in the Genesis Report – that’s a bit away yet. We have an all island tournament at the moment.”
