We consider a system of delay differential equations to represent predator-prey eco-epidemic dynamics with weak Allee effect in the growth of predator population. The basic aim of the paper is to observe the dynamics of such system under the influence of gestation delay of predator and Allee parameter. We analyze essential mathematical features of the proposed model such as uniform persistence, stability and Hopf-bifurcation at the interior equilibrium point of the system. Global asymptotic stability analysis of the positive equilibrium points by constructing a suitable Lyapunov function for the delayed model is carried out separately. We perform several numerical simulations to illustrate the applicability of the proposed mathematical model and our analytical findings. We observe that the system exhibits chaotic oscillation due to increase of the delay parameter τ. We also observe that there is a threshold of Allee parameter above which the predator population will be washed away from the system.
