Ireland call-up for James Talbot


James Talbot has been called by Ireland manager Stephen Kenny for next week’s World Cup qualifiers against Portugal, Azerbaijan and Serbia.

He is the fifth Bohemians first-team player on international duty this week.

Andy Lyons, Ross Tierney and Dawson Devoy joined up with the Ireland U21s last night ahead of their European qualifiers against Bosnia & Herzegovina and Luxembourg, alongside their former club-mate Evan Ferguson who joined Brighton at the start of the year.

Jamie Mullins, 16, who broke into the Bohs first team having won the U17 league with Bohs-SKB last year, is with the Ireland U19 training camp in England.

Se├ín Grehan, who also made his first-team debut last month having won the U17 league alongside Mullins, started the Ireland U18s’ 2-0 friendly win against Hungary earlier this month.
