Shamrock Rovers winger Neil Farrugia has been included in the Republic of Ireland's 22-man squad for a four-day training camp in Bristol next week.

Everton striker Tom Cannon comes in from the U-21s, with defenders Sean McLoughlin [Hull City] and Danny McNamara [Millwall] also included.

Jeff Hendrick, Alan Browne, Leixlip’s Andrew Omobamidele, Callum Robinson and Seamus Coleman are all definitely out of the June qualifiers.

Middlesbrough defender Darragh Lenihan and Peterborough United midfielder Jack Taylor will not be involved due to their clubs being in the Championship play-offs.

All Premier League players remain in action for their clubs.
