It is the first time Maguire has made the full squad, having been in a provisional pool for September's internationals.

Signed from Cork City for £130,000 in the summer, Maguire has started nine games for North End and scored twice.

Maguire is one of three uncapped players in the Irish squad, together with Aston Villa front man Scott Hogan and Millwall's Aiden O'Brien.
