Saints Named In U19 Squad
Tommy Lonergan and Sam Curtis have been named in the Ireland U19 Squad.
The Saints duo are included in Tom Mohan's 20-man squad for three UEFA European Under-19 Championship Qualifiers in Wexford next week.
Ireland face Slovakia (Wednesday, March 22), Estonia (Saturday, March 25) and Greece (Tuesday, March 28) at Ferrycarrig Park as they look to qualify for the U19 EUROs in Malta this summer.
Republic of Ireland Men's Under-19s Head Coach Tom Mohan said: "It is the first time since 2019 that an Irish Men's U19 team has had the opportunity to play in front of a home crowd. I'm looking forward to bringing this exciting team to Wexford to play Slovakia, Estonia and Greece.
"They are three challenging teams and it's for us to find a way to overcome them. My staff, the players and I will embrace this challenge and can't wait to get into camp."
