Sligo Rovers’ Kyle McDonagh and Daire Patton play for Republic of Ireland schools team in Scotland draw



McDonagh, of St Attracta’s, and Patton, of Summerhill College, were both involved in Sligo Rovers’ senior team preparations in pre-season, and impressed.

Presentation College, Headford student Brian Cunningham returned from injury to net the equaliser thirteen minutes into the second half to cancel out Freddie Rowe’s penalty on the stroke of half-time.

It was the second game in the ten-match series, following Northern Ireland’s 3-0 victory over England in Belfast last Friday night. The point will see the Republic in good stead when they host the league leaders, Northern Ireland next Thursday evening in the Midlands venue.
