Eileen Gleeson Has Named 26 Player Squad For Euro 2025 Qualifiers

Ireland travel to face France in Metz on Friday April 5th, before hosting England at the Aviva Stadium the following Tuesday

Republic of Ireland boss Eileen Gleeson has named a 26 player squad for the upcoming EURO 2025 qualifiers with France and England.

There's a first call up for Aston Villa's Anna Patten - the defender qualifies through her Donegal born grandfather and Galway born grandmother.

However the 24 year old is still awaiting international clearance from FIFA before being declared eligible for the games.

Midfielders Denise O'Sullivan and Tyler Toland along with defender Niamh Fahey return to the squad, having missed the friendlies with Italy and Wales last month.

Defender Tara O'Hanlon is still working through the return to play protocol, while midfielders Sinead Farrelly and Jamie Finn are unavailable due to injury.

Ireland travel to face France in Metz on Friday April 5th, before hosting England at the Aviva Stadium the following Tuesday.

The full squad is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Courtney Brosnan (Everton), Grace Moloney (London City Lionesses), Sophie Whitehouse (Lewes).

Defenders: Jessie Stapleton (Reading - on loan from West Ham United), Diane Caldwell (FC Zurich), Louise Quinn (Birmingham City), Niamh Fahey (Liverpool), Aoife Mannion (Manchester United), Caitlin Hayes (Celtic), Anna Patten (Aston Villa), Megan Campbell (London City Lionesses).

Midfielders: Katie McCabe (Arsenal), Denise O'Sullivan (North Carolina Courage), Megan Connolly (Bristol City), Ruesha Littlejohn (London City Lionesses), Tyler Toland (Blackburn Rovers), Lily Agg (Birmingham City), Heather Payne (Everton), Jess Ziu (West Ham United), Lucy Quinn (Birmingham City), Izzy Atkinson (Crystal Palace).

Forwards: Kyra Carusa (San Diego Wave), Abbie Larkin (Crystal Palace), Amber Barrett (Standard Liege), Leanne Kiernan (Liverpool), Emily Murphy (Wake Forest University).
