Galway’s Aaron Connolly and Blackburn Rovers defender Derrick Williams have been called into Mick McCarthy’s Republic of Ireland squad for the EURO 2020 games against Georgia and Switzerland.

The former Mervue United man scored twice for Brighton in their 3-0 win at home to Tottenham Hotspur and is promoted from Stephen Kenny’s Under-21 squad after a hamstring injury ruled out Portsmouth’s Ronan Curtis.

Williams gets his first call up from McCarthy after his Blackburn team-mates Greg Cunningham and Darragh Lenihan suffered knee injuries in the defeat at QPR.

The Ireland squad meet up at the team hotel on Sunday with training commencing at the FAI National Training Centre on Monday ahead of Thursday’s departure to Tbilisi.
