Ireland v Turkey May 25 2014
Republic of Ireland Senior International

MARTIN O'Neill's Republic of Ireland senior international mens team are focusing on the UEFA 2016 Championships qualifying campaign.

 The fixtures were released shortly after the draw, and sends Ireland away to Georgia for their opening fixture on Sunday September 7.


Gibraltar will be making their competitive debut this autumn for UEFA’s 2016 European Qualifiers. Their trip to Dublin on Saturday October 11 to face Ireland will be their very first competitive away fixture.

Almost a year to the day since Ireland’s last battle against old foes Germany in Cologne for the last of our World Cup efforts with caretaker manager Noel King at the helm, Ireland will again travel to Germany on October 14 with a clean slate for our new campaign.

Ireland’s last competitive fixture for 2014 will be on Friday November 14 against neighbours Scotland. The boys in green haven’t faced Scotland competitively since the EURO 1988 Qualifiers, which saw a glorious win for Ireland in Hamden Park in February 1987 when Mark Lawrenson fired home a 6th minute decider in a pivotal moment for Ireland’s qualifying campaign.

Our EURO 2012 hosts Poland will be last up in the group to face Ireland at home in Aviva Stadium on Sunday March 29 2015. Poland’s last visit to Dublin saw Ireland triumph 2-0 thanks to goals from Wes Hoolahan and Ciaran Clark in a colourful Aviva Stadium with a powerful Polish presence chanting throughout the game.

Ticketing details for both home and away games will be issued as soon as possible. FanRepublic will keep you up to date on everything you need to know!
