BANDON’S Conor Hourihane has been named in the Republic of Ireland squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Moldova.
This is the first time the 25-year-old West Cork man has been included in the Irish senior squad.
The Barnsley captain has enjoyed a tremendous start to the Championship season, scoring three goals from midfield as well as four assists, as the Tykes have started the season strongly. He was also named the Championship Player of the Month for August.
Speaking to The Southern Star recently, Conor said: ‘To play for Ireland is an aspiration of mine, it’s something I am working towards and hopefully it will come; we just have to wait and see.’
The good news is that Conor's time has come, and it's well deserved.
