Republic of Ireland interim manager Eileen Gleeson says it's natural that there are varied opinions around the departure of Vera Pauw.
Diane Caldwell was critical of the former manager yesterday, opining that Ireland's success was in spite of Pauw, not because of her.
The Girls in Green play Northern Ireland in the Nations League at Lansdowne Road on Saturday and Gleeson is doing her best to concentrate on that.
The Republic of Ireland may have to qualify for Euro 2028, even if they are co-hosts with England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Only two places will be kept free according to a UEFA plan reported by the Times newspaper.
If any of the five countries qualify, the next two spots will be filled by co-hosts.
Mickey Harte is going to become the new manager of the Derry senior footballers.

Derry are the current Ulster champions and reached the All Ireland semi final this year.
The Harvest Festival continues at Listowel today from 2.05.
Meanwhile, trainer Nicky Henderson has confirmed that his star horse, 'Constitution Hill' - will be staying over hurdles this season.
