The club has happy to annouce that four members of our underage teams have been called up to the National team for upcoming UEFA Qualifiers.
Steven Kinsella, on loan from Everton, has been named in Tom Mohan's Under 19 squad. The Irish head to Tirana for a testing mini-group when they face Albania, Germany and Gibraltar with the top two sides progressing to the main qualifying round. Georgia will host the final tournament from 2 to 15 July 2017.
Brian Maher, Cian Lee and Luke Nolan have been named in Colin O'Brien's Under 17 squad. The Irish will meet the Andorran hosts on Saturday, October 16, then face Kazakhstan on Monday, October 17, before finishing their group against Greece on Wednesday, October 20.
