Lennon Makes U21 Appearance
Saints' midfielder Jamie Lennon came on as a second half substitute for his first Republic of Ireland U21 appearance in the 3-0 win against Luxembourg.
Cork-born Adam Idah notched an impressive brace and UCD forward Neil Farrugia also scored as Ireland won their first game of their UEFA U-21 2021 European Championships qualifying campaign.
Ireland were always in complete control of the contest and will have been disappointed not to have scored more in front of a fantastic crowd of 4,772 at Tallaght Stadium.
