The Cavan native is one of 3 players brought into the squad.

Leanne Kiernan, Isibeal Atkinson and Aoibheann Clancy  have been drafted into the Republic of Ireland Women's National Team squad. Now playing with Celtic, Atkinson has made a positive start to the 2021 season, while Kiernan has started each of Liverpool's three League games since joining the club this past summer. Wexford Youths midfielder Clancy moves up from the Ireland Women's Under-19s following a fine season to date in the SSE Airtricity Women's National League and improvements made in WNT Home-Based training sessions. The trio earn call-ups after Éabha O'Mahony, Megan Connolly and Roma McLaughlin were ruled out for the International Friendly against Australia on Tuesday, September 21st. Vera Pauw's players begin their camp on Tuesday, September 14th with training taking place at the FAI National Training Centre ahead of next week's game at Tallaght Stadium. Shelbourne goalkeeper Amanda Budden will also train with the squad. Tickets for the game against Australia will go on public sale on Wednesday, September 15th.
