Irish Schools: McSweeney Called In For Athlone Trip

Limerick FC forward Seán McSweeney has received a late call-up to the Irish Schools Under-18s for two games in Athlone this week.

McSweeney put in an impressive performance for the Superblues Under-19s in their Southern Elite Division draw at Cork City on Sunday afternoon, a game which was watched by Schools boss Paddy O’Reilly at Bishopstown.

Last month, the former Shannonside youngster scored for the Schools and assisted the other goal in a 3-2 loss to a Republic of Ireland Under-17 selection at the AUL Complex in Dublin.

Now, he has been called upon again, as the squad continue preparations for the upcoming Centenary Shield.

McSweeney joins up with the team on Monday afternoon and will take in games against Athlone Town Under-19s and Athlone IT in the midlands on Monday and Tuesday.

The Shield takes place over March and April where the Republic of Ireland face Northern Ireland (17 March), Wales (26 March), England (17 April) and Scotland (23 April).

Well done to Seán on his call-up; the club wishes him the best of luck.
