Republic of Ireland manager U19 Tom Mohan has included four-home based players in his squad for next week's European Championships in Armenia.
Mohan had delayed confirming his squad as talks were still on-going over the availability of certain players – he is without 11 potential players, including one through injury – as it falls outside a FIFA international window and clubs are not obliged to release their players.
Andy Lyons (Bohemians) Brian Maher (St Patrick’s Athletic), Niall Morahan (Sligo Rovers), Brandon Kavanagh (Shamrock Rovers) are included, while Manchester United's Lee O'Connor returns to the squad having missed the Elite Round qualifying.
There are also first call-ups at this level for three players (Andrew Omobamidele, Joe Hodge, Matt Everitt) who featured in this summer's Under-17 European Championships in Dublin.
Ireland are the only team in the competition to have won all six games to qualify, and will face Norway on Monday in their group opener, live on RTÉ2.
"Last year, we set ourselves the target of qualifying for this tournament and after six games, winning each of them, we achieved that. So we know that we deserve to be here in Armenia," Mohan said.
"All of the players who were unavailable have been promoted to their respective senior teams at club level and we wish them the very best of luck as they advance in their careers.
"It is the nature of international football that you have to react to set-backs in a very short time period in order to get results. We did just that in our Elite Round qualifiers, when four players were promoted to the Under-21 set-up and another got injured before we left for Russia. Yet, the players raised their level of performance and achieved what we set out to accomplish: qualification to the finals tournament.
"Although it is frustrating to be without so many players, I am both relieved and delighted to have the group of players that we now have in camp."
