Saints Duo Named In U21 Squad

Sam Curtis and Conor Carty have been selected for the Ireland U21 squad for their upcoming games.

Congratulations also to recent Saints Academy graduates Darragh Burns, Josh Keeley and James Abankwah who are also included in Jim Crawford's 26-man squad for three friendlies against Gabon, Ukraine and Kuwait in Austria next week.

There are nine players who receive their first Under-21s call-ups - James Abankwah (Udinese), Killian Cahill (Brighton & Hove Albion), Conor Carty (St Patrick's Athletic), Dylan Duffy (Lincoln City), Sean Grehan (Crystal Palace), Jack Henry-Francis (Arsenal), Ed McJannet (Lecce), Rocco Vata (Celtic) and Harry Vaughan (Hull City).

Darragh Burns also returns to an Under-21s squad for the first time since March 2022.

The three games will be crucial preparation for Ireland's U21 EURO qualifiers against Turkey and San Marino at home in September. Gabon U23s are due to take part in the U23s AFCON later this month while Ukraine will use their game against Ireland as final preparation for the U21 EUROs in Romania/Georgia also this month.
