Republic of Ireland U-15 internationals at two Wexford venues



The Republic of Ireland are playing Hungary and Wales as part of a three-nation development tournament.

Head coach Jason Donohue has named a group of 33 players who will be split into two squads to take on the two visiting countries over two match days.

The young boys in green will play Hungary on Wednesday, February 14 at North End United at 10.30 a.m., and then later in the day another Ireland squad will face Wales at 2.30 p.m. in Ferrycarrig Park.

On Friday, February 16, Ireland come up against Wales at North End United at 10.30 a.m. before a second squad faces Hungary in Ferrycarrig Park at 12 noon.

All games will be free entry and, with secondary schools currently on mid-term breaks, it’s an ideal chance for young football enthusiasts in particular to see some of the country’s emerging talent.

“We have a great opportunity to look at 33 players over the course of the week and they’ll be coming up against quality international opposition,” Jason Donohue said.

“They’ll face two different styles of play which will aid the players’ development at this level, and it’s a great chance for the public to come out and support the next generation of Ireland internationals.”

The Under-15 squad that will meet Hungary on Wednesday and Wales on Friday is – goalkeepers: Darragh Brunton (St. Patrick’s Athletic), Stas Wasilewski (Shamrock Rovers); defenders: Danny Burke (Shamrock Rovers), Sam Cooke (Klub Kildare), Ibrahim Elsharkawy (St. Patrick’s Athletic), Jack Lawless (Bray Wanderers), Alan Sattell (Shamrock Rovers); midfielders: Brody Collins (Shamrock Rovers), Richard Ferizaj (Shamrock Rovers), Preston Gaynor (Shamrock Rovers), Joel McPhail (Shamrock Rovers), Kian Quigley (St. Patrick’s Athletic); forwards: Finn Duffy (St. Patrick’s Athletic), Kevin Madu (Shelbourne), Samuel Ogungbe (St. Patrick’s Athletic), Noble Tetteh (Shamrock Rovers).

The Under-15 squad to play Wales on Wednesday and Hungary on Friday is – goalkeepers: Adam Brogan (Southampton), George Moloney (Southampton); defenders: Ben Dumigan (Cork City), Curtis Egan (Bohemians), Aidan Gibbon (Sligo Rovers), Ikechimka Manjor (Treaty United), Seán Spaight (Dundalk); midfielders: Evidence Ikechukwu (Shamrock Rovers), Tom McGrath (Cork City), Cillian Murphy (Cork City), Victor Ozhianvuna (Shamrock Rovers), Jason Spelman (St. Patrick’s Athletic), Niall Sullivan (St. Patrick’s Athletic); forwards: Desmond Armstrong (Shamrock Rovers), Joe Byrne (St. Patrick’s Athletic), David Dunne (Cork City), T.J.
