Trio called up to Irish women's squad


Three players have been called into Vera Pauw's Republic of Ireland women's squad. 

Isibeal Atkinson, Aoibheann Clancy and Leanne Kiernan have all been added.

Ireland take on Australia in an international friendly next Tuesday at Tallaght Stadium.

They convene for a training camp from today (Tuesday).

Kiernan has started for her new club, Liverpool, in their three league fixtures since joining in the summer.

Clancy, who plys her trade with Wexford Youths, graduates from the under-19 set-up.

She has impressed with the south east club in the Women's National League and has also done well at national training sessions.

Celtic's Atkinson has also impressed at club level.

Three players - Eabha O'Mahony, Megan Connolly and Roma McLaughlin - have been ruled out of the friendly.
