Irish Football Association chief executive Patrick Nelson believes Sepp Blatter's decision to step down as president of Fifa is "very good for football".
Blatter resigned in a surprise news conference on Tuesday, four days after he was controversially re-elected as president.
US prosecutors launched a criminal inquiry last week, with seven Fifa officials arrested in Switzerland, part of a group of 14 people indicted.
