Made his senior league debut for Derby today in the Championship I believe.  

18 year old from Wexford, has played well at the European Championships for our youth teams.  

Primarily a pacy winger, but can play right back as well.  Should have a good future in the game, and at a club where Wayne Rooney is not afraid to trust young players, as we've seen with Jason Knight.

He played v well in those U17 games and he was called up to train with the 21s there in Wales, if I recall.
Should be on the periphery of the 21's squad in the upcoming campaign, which would be excellent progress as he's well below the age limit for it.

Knight got a break I think he needs it tbh. 3 teenagers on the pitch today in that game at the end not including Knight. When’s the last time that happened for Ireland at PL or Championship level?

Great question, might be the first time in a long while. Best I have is the following

Alan Maybury(19) and Stephen McPhail(18) Saturday, 7th February 1998 Premier League Leicester City 1-0 Leeds United
Shane Supple(19) and Billy Clarke(18) Saturday, 21st October 2006 Championship Southend United 1-3 Ipswich
Mark O'Brien(19) and Jeff Hendrick(19) Saturday, 26th October 2011 Championship West Ham United 3-1 Derby County
Sean Murray(18) and Connor Smith(19) Saturday, 29th September 2012 Championship Huddersfield 2-3 Watford

Played for Moyne here in Wexford top top young fella everyone has only good words to say despite being from enniscorthy 
Went over as a winger now playing full back
Could be wrong but derby had a brilliant under 18 team year or two ago I think challenged for the league that are coming through now

Had an excellent season for the Derby Under 23s last season and was one of the favourites from their youth team to break into their senior team this year. Has had a really difficult season with injuries though this year (similar to almost every young Irish player it feels) so it has taken until now for him to feature in the league. 

Similar to Omobamidele at Norwich it would be good if Derby could confirm their league status sooner rather than later as that might mean he gets a run of games before the end of the season with an eye on the future.

He has the makings of an excellent right wing back if things fall his way.

Not too sure he has the end product of a winger perfect as a right midfielder in a 4-4-2 or would be a good wing back
He was awful against chorley in the fa cup but tough circumstances

Nice so essentially the first time you can find 3 Irish teenagers on the pitch together at the same time?

I don't know about ever, I have appearance data for all premier league games, and some league cup and fa cup games up until 2006, and then pretty much all games after that.
So I'd be pretty confident it's the only time it's happened in the last 15 years.

You'd think Ebosele could be seeing the chance for a fair amount of game time in the Championship this season, given the threadbare nature of Rooney's squad.

He definitely will, Watson too ..and probably Cashin as well as they've only 1 fit central defender at present.

Even Ibrahim and Kelly-Caprani will probably be in the frame for cups games and minutes here and there throughout the season.

Kelly Caprani sounds like the name of a famous African American Pop singer not a young Irish footballer. 

Big young Irish contingent at Derby so hopefully they plenty of them will get a look in this season. Ebosele along with Knight and Watson of course the obvious standout to get gametime.

game time is great but Derby look doomed without even kicking a ball so our lads are gonna get a pretty rude awakening to senior football…

I wouldn't worry too much about that from our point of view. Luca Connell's half season in the first team taking beatings every week in the Championship were a lot more use to him than his two years since with Celtic. First team game time is the main thing for these lads if they can get it.

Just seen that Festy got on in the 68th minute for Derby today against Huddersfield.
Derby County may be a club with a lot of problems, but they have so few players that if you are half decent you'll get plenty of game time.

Anyone see the game, and how he played?

Seen the last 15mins or so, practically no involvement from what I seen. Hopefully gets more game time as you say.
