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.'

'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.'
