Dancer, entertainer, writer, producer and entrepreneur, business manager, bookmaker.

Thomas Delohery's career in the Australian variety industry was largely associated with the trio Delohery, Craydon and Holland (ca. 1883-1901). From the early 1890s he began taking increasing responsibility for both their management, as well as that of associate managers and companies - notably Delohery, Bovis and Deane; Delohery and Speed; and Delohery, St John and Holland. After the Delohery, Craydon and Holland team disbanded in the early 1900s Delohery settled in Brisbane, becoming a bookmaker and businessman.
