Four from Cork in Republic’s squad

Thursday, 18th May, 2017 1:00am

Cork’s Colin Doyle, John Egan, Conor Hourihane and Kevin Long have all been included in Martin O’Neill’s Republic of Ireland squad ahead of the June fixtures.

However, there was no room for City striker Seani Maguire, despite Maguire’s scoring 11 goals so far this season.

It’s the first call up for former City defender Kevin Long, who recently broke into the starting team for Premier League side Burnley. Long brings the total of SSE Airtricity League graduates in the squad to nine.

The Republic of Ireland will play three games in Junes, one away and two at homne.

Several players were unavailable to O’Neill due to injury, including Seamus Coleman, who is a longterm absentee following his leg break in the World Cup qualifier against Wales; while Ciaran Clark and David Meyler are both sidelined with knee injuries.

A selection of players will report for a three-day training camp in Fota Island Resort next Tuesday, 23 May before the full squad links up in Dublin on 28 May. The squad will fly to New York on 29 May ahead of the international friendly against Mexico on Thursday, 1 June in MetLife Stadium. Ireland will then play Uruguay at the Aviva Stadium in a friendly on 4 June, before the World Cup Qualifier against Austria at the Aviva Stadium on 11 June.

Squad: Goalkeepers: Colin Doyle, Rob Elliot, Keiren Westwood, Darren Randolph Defenders: Cyrus Christie, Richard Keogh, Alex Pearce, Paul McShane, Shane Duffy, John O’Shea, Andy Boyle, John Egan, Marc Wilson, Kevin Long, Stephen Ward, Matt Doherty Midfielders: Aiden McGeady, Glenn Whelan, James McCarthy, Jeff Hendrick, Robbie Brady, Harry Arter, Conor Hourihane, Stephen Gleeson, Eunan O’Kane, Darron Gibson, Liam Kelly, Wes Hoolahan, James McClean, Callum O’Dowda, Daryl Horgan, Jonathan Hayes Forwards: Kevin Doyle, David McGoldrick, Daryl Murphy, Shane Long, Jonathan Walters, Adam Rooney
