Who do people think we are that we could just go throwing established premier league players like Coleman, Hendrick, Brady and Long on the scrapheap? LOL Even the likes of McClean could well play a part in Kenny's overall squad. Simply forgetting about these guys is the exact  opposite of "maximising our resources", which is what Kenny is meant to do. Clearly all of these guys are in our top 30 players, so it will be Kenny's job to get them playing to the best of their ability, not simply discarding them.
We're decent enough..

I would think we will have all as part of a 30 man squad. Coleman is still a very good premiership player. Hendrick has been poor for Ireland but is a consistent first teamer in the premiership.

However, I dont think many players in the ireland squad have cemented themselves as guaranteed first team players by performance.

We seem to have a series of players that are undropable from the first team, players like mcclean, hendrick and coleman. Have them in the squad I totally agree but guaranteed to play?

I've always felt that Hendrick has something to offer at International level.
The hope is SK can extract that from him on something resembling a consistent basis.

I worry for Coleman as his injury and age is now telling.  Maybe a role inside would suit him better and he would 100% be in any squad I was naming.

As for McClean, he is just the antitheses of a team who want to keep the ball.  His skills lie elsewhere and I fear for his game time under SK.

There will not be sweeping changes in the squad, initially anyway-it will be more a change of style and way of playing. Coleman has been re-affirmed as captain and has been one of a number of players singled out for praise by Kenny. Others have included Egan, young Doherty, Brady whom he clearly sees as a key player he wants back in and likewise James McCarthy, whom Kenny also obviously rates though he has been publicly at least claiming to have no knowledge as to why he has not been turning up for squads. Hendrick has been a regular starter for Burnley but may be asked to play a different role that involves keeping the ball and passing it. Long was back to top form with Southampton before the break. James McClean was transformed by Kenny at Derry City from a raw teenage talent to a player who earned a transfer to a Premiership club, he knows him well and will get the best out of him. Molumby may get an early chance and some of the young strikers too.

Initially I don'lt expect to see many changes to the team. Whelan will drop out and the wing positions may be up for grabs. That may be about the height of it. The back 5 pick itself. McGoldrick will surely retain his place most likely with Hendrick playing in behind him. Molumby will probably get a chance. Will McCarthy come back into the squad? Debateable. I expect the team initially to look something like:

4-2-3-1 

Randolph
Coleman(C)
Duffy
Egan
Stevens

Molumby
Hourihane

Robinson
Hendrick
Brady

McGoldrick
Walters coming back from an offside position but Shane Long was definitely onside- Shane Lonnggggggg.... has done it!!!!

Maybe they are the people who championed a LOI manager for the job. Or the people who clamoured for  youth to be given a fling. Or people who want speedy youngsters to work their magic. People who think Seanie Maguire and Callum Robinson will make a difference. Does the cap fit?

Kenny will discard nobody possibly apart from  whelan.
He has possibly 11 games in a short space of  time and possibly the finals  also .So allowing for injuries and loss of form he will need all the players.

Troy Parrott has had his appendix out. Routine operation but will be out for a while and unavailable for selection. Mick McCarthy has recently expressed the view that he absolutely needs to go on loan to a club where he is going to play, given the obduracy of the Special One, but that will be put off again now.

It's an appendix. He'll be back training by end of June, and might be in with a shout of some game time (5 subs) near the tail end of the season, which injured or not was always probably going be the likely outcome. 

Then out on loan seems highly likely. Fate has now opened the door for Troy potentially playing at the Euros next year. But he'll need to start banging in goals. He won't be content sitting on the bench at Spurs.
