Bit O’ Red youths in Ireland Under 17 squad against Mexico

Under 19 goalkeeper Conor Walsh and Under 17 defender Daniel Kelly are both representing Ireland Under 17’s this week in Cork as part of a double header of International friendlies against Mexico at Turner’s Cross.

Walsh, who signed his first professional contract with the club last week, played 90 minutes for Colin O’ Brien’s side in a 2-1 victory last night. Kelly was an unused substitute.

The pair from Mayo will once again be part of the squad tomorrow afternoon as the two countries meet at 12 Noon at the same venue before returning to the club for training this week ahead of games this coming weekend.
