The Republic of Ireland will now be in search for a new manager after parting company by mutual agreement with Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane.
The decision came after a meeting last night between the association chief executive John Delaney and manager O’Neill.
The FAI confirmed the board will meet ‘promptly’ to discuss the process of recruiting a new manager. Dundalk manager Stephen Kenny, former Republic boss Mick McCarthy and Steve Bruce have all been mentioned as potential siuccessors.
Coaches Steve Guppy and Seamus McDonagh have also left, with Steve Walford resigning his position previously.
O’Neill has spent the last five years in charge of Ireland along with his assistant manager Roy Keane, but endured a torrid 2018, as Ireland were relegated from the Nations League B without winning a game, and managed just one win in eleven games.
In a statement to confirm the decision, Delaney thanked O’Neill, Keane and the rest of the backroom team for their “impact” on the Ireland team.
“There have been many highlights during Martin’s reign – none more so than Euro 2016 in France, which will live long in the memory of all Irish supporters.
“Martin did a great job guiding the team out of a difficult qualifying group – where we beat world champions Germany along the way – to reach Euro 2016 and advance to the Last-16 following a historic victory over Italy in Lille.
He wished the departing management team the best in the future.
Also in the statement, FAI President Donal Conway said: “On behalf of the FAI Board, I would like to thank Martin, Roy, and the management team for their work with the Republic of Ireland team over the last five years.
“Martin ensured that we enjoyed some great nights in the Aviva Stadium and on the road in Lille, Vienna, and Cardiff, which were fantastic high points for Irish football.”
