Mick McCarthy has revealed his final 23-man Ireland squad for the opening Euro 2020 qualifiers.

The Ireland manager had named an initial 38-man panel for the Gibraltar and Georgia games last week.

But he has now whittled that down. Newport striker Padraig Amond and Sunderland winger Aiden McGeady are among those left out. Everton midfielder James McCarthy, who has not played this season, also misses out.

However, Luton Town forward James Collins does make the cut. Glenn Whelan, who had received an Ireland send-off in 2018, also maintains his place.

Republic of Ireland Squad

Goalkeepers: Darren Randolph (Middlesbrough), Keiren Westwood (Sheffield Wednesday), Mark Travers (Bournemouth)

Defenders: Seamus Coleman (Everton), Matt Doherty (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Richard Keogh (Derby County), John Egan (Sheffield United), Shane Duffy (Brighton & Hove Albion), Enda Stevens (Sheffield United)

Midfielders: Alan Judge (Ipswich Town), Jeff Hendrick (Burnley), Conor Hourihane (Aston Villa), Alan Browne (Preston North End), Harry Arter (Cardiff City), Glenn Whelan (Aston Villa), Robbie Brady (Burnley), Callum O'Dowda (Bristol City), James McClean (Stoke City)

Forwards: Shane Long (Southampton), Sean Maguire (Preston North End), Ronan Curtis (Portsmouth), David McGoldrick (Sheffield United), James Collins (Luton Town)

 

Ireland visit Gibralater on March 23rd, before hosting Georgia three days later. Denmark and Switzerland are the other teams in the Irish qualifying group.
