Greg Cunningham, Alan Browne and Daryl Horgan joined-up with the squad in Dublin on Thursday afternoon.

However, their PNE team-mate Sean Maguire has been forced to pull out of the squad with a minor hamstring strain.

Callum Robinson is not yet eligible to play full international football as he waits for his paperwork to come through - he played for England at four age levels but has switched his allegiance to the Irish.
