New international boss for Preston North End players as Martin O'Neill leaves Republic of Ireland post
A host of Preston North End players have played for O'Neill during his time in charge including Callum Robinson, Sean Maguire, Alan Browne and Graham Burke.
The 66-year-old had been at the helm since 2013, leading the country to the last 16 of Euro 2016, and leaves after a disappointing UEFA Nations League campaign.
Assistant Roy Keane and O'Neill's other backroom staff have also left their roles following Monday's 0-0 draw with Denmark.
The Football Association of Ireland president Donal Conway said on the association's official website: "On behalf of the FAI Board, I would like to thank Martin, Roy, and the management team for their work with the Republic of Ireland team over the last five years."
