It’s full steam ahead under Stephen Kenny for the Republic of Ireland – and we’ve cut the odds on qualification for Euro 2020 following his appointment this week.
Mick McCarthy will always have a special place in the hearts of most Irish football fans, with the exception of one particular Corkman of course.

However we’re all aboard the Kenny bandwagon and believe he could hold the key to making it through.

We’ve now shaved the price down to 3/1 for Ireland to be at the European Championships when they finally take place next summer.
