Danny McNamara was part of a squad of EFL and League of Ireland players at a training camp in Bristol

DANNY McNamara received praise from Ireland boss Stephen Kenny after a recent training camp in Bristol.

McNamara, 24, was part of a 20-man squad assembled from the EFL and League of Ireland as part of preparations for Euro 2024 qualifiers this month.

McNamara, Hull City defender Sean McLoughlin, Shamrock Rovers winger Neil Farrugia, Derry City goalkeeper Brian Maher and Oxford United goalkeeper Ed McGinty were all part of a senior squad for the first time. Former Millwall players Jayson Molumby and Troy Parrott were also involved.

The latter two have been included in the 25-man squad for the qualifiers against Greece and Gibraltar, but McNamara has missed out.

“I think all of the players, Neil, Danny, Sean McLoughlin for the first time and the goalkeepers Brian Maher, Ed McGinty and Max O’Leary performed really well,” Kenny said on the Football Association of Ireland website after the Bristol camp.

“But a lot of players have [had injury issues] and it has been an important week. Nothing beats actually playing football and actually training rather than setting individual programmes and I feel the players have really benefitted from that.

“It was a great week of work from the players. The focus is completely on these next two matches and we’ve got nine days in Turkey to look forward to before we head to Athens and return home to face Gibraltar.”
