The Football Association of Ireland is hoping to begin interviews for a new Republic of Ireland women's senior head coach by Monday, the 22 of July.

The association advertised for the position this evening, after it was vacated by Colin Bell at the end of last month. They're looking for "an established manager with a successful track record in football."

The team begin their Euro 2021 qualifying campaign in September with a game against Montenegro at Tallaght.

FAI General Manager Noel Mooney said: "We are determined to give our team the very best chance of qualifying for the UEFA European Championships in 2021, which take place on our doorstep in England. 

"This is a key leadership position within the FAI and Irish football. It is crucial for us is to recruit the right person to lead our Women’s Senior International Team to unprecedented success, while playing a significant role in the ongoing development of our elite International players and the education of elite coaches.

"We've made significant progress with the WNT and we're eager to continue that as we look to qualify for a major international tournament for the first time, starting with the qualifier against Montenegro at Tallaght Stadium in September."

It remains to be seen whether the new manager will be in place for Ireland's glamour friendly with newly crowned World Cup winners the USA next month. The fixture was confirmed this afternoon.
