Campaign For Justice For Robert DelanyThe Gardaí have stated publicly that Robert was not known to them and was never involved in any criminal activities.
Robert’s family and friends who are devastated as a result of the attack have organised the “Justice for Robert Delany Campaign” , which was launched on Saturday, 31st January 2009 at a public meeting in the Plaza Hotel in Tallaght, which was attended by over 200 people and all of the local public representatives in Tallaght. Following the meeting 10,000 leaflets were distributed in Tallaght appealing to the public to give information to the Gardaí.

 One of the most disturbing features of the vicious attack on Robert is the people allegedly responsible are masquerading as Irish Republicans and have used the name of Irish Republicanism to cover themselves. The Delany family have met with Gerry Adams, President of Sinn Féin and Sean Crowe the local Sinn Féin Councillor following which Sinn Féin issued statements and leaflets supporting the “Justice for Robert Delany Campaign”.


The Justice for Robert Delany Campaign has written to the Leinster Senior Football League and John Delaney, Chief Executive, FAI, requesting that the decision concerning the appointment of the manager of the League Representative Squad be rescinded.
