FOUR NEW PLAYERS have been called up to the Ireland squad after the latest couple of withdrawals.

Shamrock Rovers duo Graham Burke and Aaron McEneff come into the squad, while Troy Parrott and Jack Taylor are promoted from the U21 team.

It is the first time that both McEneff and Peterborough United player Taylor have been included in the senior squad.

The news comes after James McClean and Matt Doherty were forced to withdraw following positive tests for Covid-19, while Adam Idah is also ruled out through injury ahead of the Nations League game at home to Bulgaria on Wednesday.

Stephen Kenny’s side were already without Jayson Molumby and Jeff Hendrick through suspension following yesterday’s match against Wales in Cardiff.
