Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane have parted company with the Republic of Ireland by mutual agreement.
The decision follows crunch talks last night in the UK between the association chief executive John Delaney and manager O’Neill.
Steve Guppy and Seamus McDonagh have also left their roles with the national team setup.
In a statement to confirm the decision, Delaney commended O’Neill and his staff for their work over the last five years.
“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.”Tags:
