Subject: Players eligible for Ireland
Date Posted: 13 Jun 2013 at 10:13am
In response to the thread about players being born on the old sod that was active yesterday I was just wondering if any lads knew of players who were born abroad but able to play for Ireland? (away from England and Scotland)

There are Irish communities all over Europe at the minute and I know that the labourers who worked in Germany during the 1980s all ehhhh....claimed to have fun.

Half the lads that were in Poznan and Gdansk last year 'claim' that there may well be an Oisin or Conor Jedraszczyk popping into the world about three months ago.

I have lived in poland for a while now and if there is any sort of skill on the mots side and he becaomes a half decent player I know who he'd play for.

The NY RedBulls keeper US born Ryan Meara is still eligible too i think, he was called to the  U-21 s for a friendly but NY wouldnt release him as they had an important game coming up.
Barry Maguire - Utrecht midfielder is dutch born and bred with an Irish da.

Jonny Steele (NY Red Bulls). From Larne but has yet to be called up by NI. Raised as a nationalist in a very unionist/loyalist area, I reckon if we called him up first he'd jump at the chance.

AWESOMEEEEEE!!!!!!

He's a netminder as well as a goalkeeper too!  You'd think the groundstaff would look after the nets in America, they must be very tight!

The Yonkers-born stopper will link up with Noel King's under-21 squad for the European Championship qualifier against Italy on June 4 and the friendly match with Denmark prior to that clash.

Meara, 21, qualifies for the Boys in Green through his grandparents and has established himself as NYRB's number one goalkeeper since the retirement of Frank Rost at the end of the 2011 MLS season.

A second-round draft choice, Meara has performed above expectations for the Bulls, beating off the competition of expected first-choice Jeremy Vuolo for the gloves.

The 6'4 netminder kept his first clean sheet of the campaign during New York's 1-0 win against http://sports.yahoo.com/mls/teams/nwe" rel="nofollow - New England Revolution at the weekend.

Meara will compete with MK Dons goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin for the starting shirt in Ireland's goal.

King's side are currently placed third in qualification Group 7 behind the Italians and Turkey ahead of the 2013 UEFA Under-21 European Championship in Israel.

The U21 coach told the Irish Independent: "He's coming over for the games at the end of the month. We play Denmark in a friendly before the Italy match and we'll have a good look at him then."

i'm not sure if he can play football, but he was assistant referee in an african world cup qualifier played last week in "Windhoek", which means "hot springs", or more accurately "place of steam".
speaking of which, he might be the ideal replacement for mcShane?

Quote By Liam Mackey
It has been suggested to the Irish Examiner that the Derryman could target as many as a dozen players under the so-called ‘granny rule’. 

The former Celtic, Aston Villa and Sunderland manager is believed to have identified several Premier League and Championship footballers who either refused to declare for Ireland under Giovanni Trapattoni or haven’t yet been approached. Sources close to O’Neill say he is confident he would be able to convince more players to come on board with him. 


This could obviously and probably is horsesh*t but what Granny rule players are there that would make the squad or improve it. Fook Bunn and Elliot until at least they get 1st team football.

They have all declared. Check out Luke Chambers Ipswich Town Player Profile which list his nationality as Irish. I contacted the Press Association as they listed a heap of Irish Players as English (they provide the data for the club's website's) and they seem to have changed them.

JonJo Shelvey was eligible but knocked us back.  I was unaware of this.  Played for "the England" v Dan Marino so he's dead to us now! 
Trap was sniffing back in 2009 it seems.  Luckily we had Jay O'Shea!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really can't fathom the Simon Cox hatefest. We all know he isn't a winger as Trap played him since Euro 2012 but I actually thought he did a reasonable job when played up front. He scored a few goals and acts as a decent link man.

As for Green while we appear to have better options he does give is a dogged type of option.

Watched a good few televised Leicester games last year with a leicester supporting mate and that Michael Keane isn't half bad. Very composed on the ball and first to it more often than not. Loses concentration a couple of times a game though. Problem could be fixed with age. It'd be a nice fillip for Ireland if he came back into the fold.

Agreed.. look at home first then abroad
young players should feel that there is a progression from LoI and other leagues towards higher standing in the senior team.

Agree with ye but when there isnt the quality being produced in ireland then there is no option but to look at people with some irsh connection in them. I say the quality isnt here because in the current u21 the better players are the ones born in england

Uncapped wannabies in line to join Irish odyssey

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

By John Fallon

As born winners, Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane will dig deep to turn around Ireland’s fortunes — which is good news for prospective new talent.

There’s at least 10 months left before the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign takes flight, ample time to cast the net wide and far in pursuit of the strongest possible material to work with. 

It’s understood a B international is already being considered for the same week as the friendly against Serbia in Dublin next March. The opposition may even be an Airtricity League select, providing O’Neill and Keane with the added insight into the best gems plying their trade domestically. 

In the meantime, there’s phone calls to be made and living-rooms to visit for our new supremos. The pair accepting no for an answer just doesn’t sit right. Here we feature some of the uncapped wannabies born outside of the 26 counties who are available, and possibly ready, to join the odyssey. 

Curtis Davies (Hull City) 

At 28, the centre-back is at a crossroads and Ireland may be the beneficiary. Tired of being overlooked for England, Davies is assessing his options, with a word in his ear from Hull’s Irish quintet not to be underestimated. 

Connor Wickham (Sunderland) 

Played under Keane at Ipswich and O’Neill for Sunderland, the tall striker is eligible for Ireland through his grandparents. Scored at the weekend for on-loan club Sheffield Wednesday. Can still switch from England to Ireland. 

Callum McManaman (Wigan) 

The winger, man of the match in Wigan’s FA Cup final win last May, possesses bundles of quality, albeit still to show his full potential. Still only 22 years old and has Irish ancestry. 

Patrick Bamford (Chelsea) 

Any striker who bags a dozen goals so far this season is worthy of attention, even at League One level where he’s shone for MK Dons. Ireland U21 manager Noel King has asked Bamford for an answer on whether he’s ready to jump ship from England. 

Ryan McLaughlin (Liverpool) 

Only recently turned 19, the Belfast-born defender has parked his Northern Ireland career for now. This has heightened speculation of him throwing his lot in with the Republic, despite Pool boss Brendan Rodgers already trying to aid Michael O’Neill’s powers of persuasion. 

Rory Donnelly (Swansea City) 

Another starlet hothoused through the Northern Ireland FA, Donnelly has played for their U21s after a period of uncertainty. The striker — part of Swansea’s Europa League squad — is not lost to the Republic cause yet. 

Liam McAlinden (Wolves) 

This one is certainly in the bag. English-born McAlinden told Michael O’Neill no thanks in favour of the Republic. All that awaits for the switch is clearance from Fifa. 

Cameron McGeehan (Norwich) 

The Londoner’s Norwich colleague, Ireland U19 defender Kyle McFadden, revealed McGeehan might be disposed towards the Republic. Captained the Canaries to the FA Youth Cup last season in the final against Chelsea. 

Michael Duffy (Derry City) 

One for the long-term, Duffy is the latest wideman to emerge from Derry’s production line. Has represented the North at U19 level.

2 things
 
1. Curtis Davies - seems to have slipped everyone minds that when MON left Villa Davies went public with how much he hated playing under MON and how relieved etc he was so that defo aint gonna happen
2. Wickham is also on record as stating his desire to play for Ingerland over Ireland and that should be that. If he had not said anything in public it wouldnt be a problem, but, having gone on record with it,, it should, in my humble opinion, be the end of it. We all know AT would have sooner played for England, but the saving grace was, he never said it. If you openly declare for a country, you should stick to it.
(ps......Wickham has been a huge disappointment so far)
 
Its a little known fact that Tony Hibberts mother is a Roscommon woman. Few years too late i suppose, but could have done a job.

Don't see Wickham joining us. McManaman might also be aiming for England considering he was named in a squad just a few months back. I would welcome Bamford, McLaughlin, Donnelly, and can't say I know a lot about the rest. 

On a related note, I sent a message to the FAI recently about Luke Murphy at Leeds, Kieran Trippier at Burnley, McGugan at Watford, and Harry Maguire at Sheffield Utd. They responded that some aren't eligible for us, which through power of deduction means that some are! Anyone know which of these CAN play for us?

Mexico and the USA are naturalizing foreign players "left and right",  and Ireland cant get McInerney?, that's odd,   Mexico had like 4 argentinians with the residency scam and some brazilians

Why would you want someone who is currently an English U-21 and qualifies for us through his Northern father? If he is good enough he will play with the English seniors.

@javier

Don't think he would be eligible for naturalization, even if he wanted to. Never lived in Ireland, and most recent connection seems to be a generation too far back.

"And, as if following a script, Emerald Isle descendent Jack McInerney scored the game’s lone goal to give the Union a 1-0 win over the New England Revolution and a strong 2-1 start to the MLS season.

The 20-year-old forward, who acknowledged that his great-grandmother was born in Ireland, may not have reached legal drinking age yet. But he certainly has become a go-to player for the Philadelphia attack."

Javier, can you spend some of the time you spend on this site finding a Batigoal-type in the Argentine leagues with a bit of Irish in him - I'm sure we'd all appreciate it.

This!

There is a young lad playing in the MLS at the moment, name is Shane O'Neill. He's a defender and by all accounts he's sh*t hot. Has already playes underage for the yanks, but his father is and mother are from cork (aul lad won 2 AI football titles with cork) and his uncle is Kerry great Maurice Fitzgerald. Some sporting pedagree! (On a side not his brother is playing as a kicker for some big college team and is tipped for the nfl)...Think King beenon to him already and he's considering it

O'Neill is apparently quite good, and has been talking up his Ireland prospects recently  http://prosoccertalk.nbcsports.com/2013/10/03/colorado-rapids-defender-shane-oneill-debating-between-u-s-ireland/" rel="nofollow - http://prosoccertalk.nbcsports.com/2013/10/03/colorado-rapids-defender-shane-oneill-debating-between-u-s-ireland/  

Maybe not a future international, but a midfielder named Liam Collins from Skibbereen has been one of the top prospects in the college leagues for University of Memphis this year. Will be interesting to see if he gets a chance in the MLS. He has had a very good few years at this level. Apparently got some options with MLS teams

Number one ranking in the league is an American kid named Patrick Mullins, a goalscoring midfielder. Not sure if there is any connection there. Got a big Irish head on him.

hhahha.,  yes Batistuta and Canniggia gets sunny golden hair, we are the envy of our european looks from Mexico to Chile, only Uruguayans are similar to use, but they are only 3 millions. 

From irish descendent i only know Rodrigo "the jewel" Palacio, Jose Luis Brown,  Javier McAllister and Patricio McAllister.  i think former world cup winner el loco René Houseman was also from  irish heritage as is elegant former national team number 10, Charlie Babington back in the 70's

Now there is a few argentinians playing for Mexico, (residency)( and Italy, (heritage) Southampton's Osvaldo, Schelotto, Camoranesi before,  as for some Croatians tried to get Cvitanich and Bilos unsuccesfully, and a now  a new greek boy  a forward is under attention for the greek youths.

Jose Luis Brown and the McAllister bros (along with a surprising amount of notable argentines) were of Scottish ancestry:

The Brown name in Argentina is of Irish descent not Scottish!

The influence continues to the present day. In the 1986 World Cup final, the scorer of the first goal in Argentina's 3-2 win against West Germany was Jose Luis Brown, direct descendant of a Scot who set sail for Buenos Aires in 1825.

On 11 August 1825, James Brown was one of 220 Scots on board the Symmetry, one of several ships that left Leith and Greenock for Buenos Aires that year. Their passage had been paid by two Roxburghshire-born http://www.scotsman.com/sport/argentine-football-returns-to-roots-of-its-scottish-founder-1-1146916#" rel="nofollow -

 
Returning to the subject this lad at Sheffield Utd may be eligible for the Republic of Ireland (if he's eligible for the North he can also play for you can't he ?).

If we're looking at the Nordie u-21s, Liam Donnelly at Fulham and Greg Tempest at Notts County are also worth a look

Since Keane is in charge anyone else think he might have a word in Michael and Will Keanes ear.

there father is from Artane i believe.

There is also Patrick Bamford @ Chelsea, Ryan Mclaughlin @ liverpool and Rory Donnelly @ Swansea i would think would be decent additons

Ask a player once, do you want to play for Ireland simple answer Yes or No Thumbs Up

If the player refuses, then none of this backtracking or waiting, a polite ok and we'll more on would more than suffice.

Don't want to link to the D*ily M*il, but they indicate Nathan Redmond at Norwich and Harry Kane at Spurs as two possible call-ups. Either would be quite a coup
