I've plenty of cousins with English parents and Irish grandparents 

I have English parents with Irish Grandparents and funnily enough I share the same name as the person we're talking about.

My parents had absolutely no interest with Ireland, a generation thing, moved on from the Irish links. 
So in his case there will possibly be a great granda with some affiliation but the granda would have had no interest which has been passed down to the Da representing GB into a sad devolution into a fully blooded Geordie.

Hence why I said in the second post in replying to PM tha it'd be 1 or 2 generations too late to be eligible. 

That makes absolutely no sense. You're essentially making an assumption that Longstaff couldn't have an Irish-born grandparent because his situation is (possibly) superficially similar to yours. Not exactly a scientific thought-process, is it?
We're decent enough..

Well he doesn’t have a Irish born grandparent does he so it’s not exactly wrong

I'm sure he's been discussed on here but what is the story with Conor Coady, can re play for us?  I know he's played a decent level underage for England but maybe could be persuaded by Mick and TC!

According to Transfermarkt (not always reliable) James and John Murphy - with LAFC and NY Red Bull respectively - are both eligible. 

Great spot DD.  20 yo left back apparently likely to be starting for mid-table erddivisie side. 

Hopefully Mick and Kenny will take note and he'll be directly approached - and at least considered for a spot in the 21s.

If he's starting in the Dutch League, you'd imagine he'll be called up by NZ ASAP. It'd be a tough one as we'd likely only be able to offer him U-21 football in an immediate sense.
