Darragh Leahy

Congratulations to Darragh Leahy and Danny Mandroiu who have been called up by Ireland U21 manager Stephen Kenny for the upcoming UEFA European Championships qualifiers against Armenia and Sweden.

Ireland face Armenia at Tallaght Stadium on Friday September 6 and then Sweden in Kalmar on Tuesday September 10.

Leahy was a star performer for Kenny’s side in the recent Toulon Tournament while Mandroiu has been rewarded for his breakthrough debut season for Bohs, which sees him second in the league’s goalscoring chart with 10 and has already seen him win the SSE Airtricity/Soccer Writers’ Association of Ireland Player of the Month for June.

The call-up for the pair, both formerly of Bohs’ partners St Kevin’s Boys, means they will be unavailable for selection for the Saturday September 7 Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Scottish Challenge Cup tie away to Airdrieonians.
