Muireann Devaney's rise in the world of soccer continued apace when the former Manorhamilton Rangers star was called up for a training camp with Vera Pauw's Republic of Ireland senior squad.

The Glencar woman, who lines out with third placed Athlone Town in the SSE Airtricity Women's National League, has been a regular with Ireland underage teams over the years but this is her first appearance with the Senior squad, joining Mohill's Dearbhaile Beirne in winning that honour.
