Dunne Earns First Irish Call-Up

16 November 2018

Young Clarets defender Jimmy Dunne has been drafted back into the Republic of Ireland squad for their make-or-break Nations League tie with Denmark next week.

The 21-year-old, who us currently enjoying an impressive loan spell at Scottish Premier League Hearts – had been one of 13 defenders named in Ireland's provisional 36-man squad.

After spending a week training with the squad, a whittling down of numbers meant Dunne left the camp ahead of Thursday’s goalless draw with Northern Ireland in Dublin.

Injuries, however, have now led to a first full call-up to Martin O’Neill’s squad and the U21 international will link up with fellow Clarets Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick and Kevin Long ahead of the trip to Aarhus on Monday, 19 November.

Ireland must win the final group game in Denmark to keep alive their slim hope of avoiding relegation from their Nations League group.
Congratulations to Jimmy from all at Turf Moor.
