Keane on bibs and balls duty during O'Neill's first day on the training ground

There was a large media presence out at Malahide as the new regime got underway this morning.

IRELAND’S NEW MANAGEMENT team of Martin O’Neill and assistant Roy Keane took training for the first time in Malahide this morning.

The media, who showed up in their numbers, were invited to the first 15 minutes and witnessed Keane handing out the bibs and a light warm-up before the gates were shut.

Our man Niall Kelly was down there and we’ll have news from Gannon Park this afternoon but, while you’re waiting, check out pics of the session:
