Joe Delaney, (born 4 August 1972, Dublin, Ireland) is an Irish professional snooker player. Delaney reached the final stages of the 2003 UK Championship. In 2007 he made the final stages of the UK Championship where he lost in the first round to Joe Swail. He also qualified for 2007 World Snooker Championship (his first ever last-32 run in a ranking event), where he lost to Matthew Stevens 10–2, though in winning the second of his two frames he recovered from a large deficit. At the start of the 2010/2011 season he has qualified for the final stages of the Shanghai Masters with victories over Patrick Einsle 5–2, Rory McLeod 5–1 and Gerard Greene 5–2.

Snooker is his main priority, but he has another profession – he runs a furniture business with his father and brother, which make seating for nightclubs and cinemas.[citation needed]
