INISHOWN DUO Kieran McDaid and Matthew Byrne have been selected for duty for the Republic of Ireland junior international team.
Buncrana Hearts’ McDaid (pictured above) and Glengad United’s Byrne have been chosen as part of the squad by new Ireland manager Gerry Davis.
They will take on Northern Ireland in a friendly on Saturday-week, May 21.
McDaid played with Finn Harps last year before returning to his native Buncrana Hearts. Last May, he played for the Inishowen League as they won the Oscar Traynor Cup.
