  • Westport native Conor O'Malley has been called into the Republic of Ireland provisional squad for the friendly games against Celtic (May 20), France (May 28) and United States (June 2) by manager Martin O'Neill/

    The 23 year old Peterborough United goalkeeper O'Malley has started nine games this season for "Posh" and is one of four players to receive their first call ups alongside Graham Burke of Shamrock Rovers, Millwall midfielder Shaun Williams, and Preston North End forward Callum Robinson. 

    Previously with St Patrick's Athletic, Conor was a part of a talented and successful Maynooth University team before making the move across the water.
