On Wednesday night at the Aviva stadium the Republic of Ireland lost to Uruguay 3-2. Goals from Shane Long and Keith Fahey were the highlights of a spirited Irish performance. Ciaran Clarke who’s father was raised in Milford earned his second cap starting at left back. James McCarthy who came on to win his first international cap in last weekend’s victory over Macedonia started as a deep lying striker playing behind Shane Long. James qualifies to play for the Republic as his grandfather comes from Gweedore.
