IT’S a case joy or two Derry lads and disappointment for another two in the Republic of Ireland Euro 2016 squad.
Manager Martin O’Neill has now announced his 23-man squad for the Euro finals after his team’s 2-1 defeat by Belarus in Cork last night.
West Brom’s James McClean and Shane Duffy are on the plane for France.
But sadly Eunan O’Kane and Darron Gibson have missed out.
It is still good news for the North West with Donegal’s Shay Given and Seamus Coleman also named in the squad.
The team will be captained by former Tottenham Hotspurs and Liverpool striker Robbie Keane who plays his football in the MLS league in America.
Goalkeepers: Darren Randolph (West Ham), Shay Given (Stoke), Keiren Westwood (Sheffield Wednesday)
Defenders: Cyrus Christie (Derby), Seamus Coleman (Everton), Ciaran Clark (Aston Villa), Richard Keogh (Derby), Shane Duffy (Blackburn), John O’Shea (Sunderland), Stephen Ward (Burnley)
Midfielders: James McClean (West Brom), Glenn Whelan (Stoke), James McCarthy (Everton), Jeff Hendrick (Derby), Stephen Quinn (Reading), Wes Hoolahan (Norwich), David Meyler (Hull City), Robbie Brady (Norwich), Aiden McGeady (Everton)
Forwards: Jon Walters (Stoke), Shane Long (Southampton), Robbie Keane (LA Galaxy), Daryl Murphy (Ipswich)Tags:
