McHugh Called Into Ireland U19 Squad

November 8, 2018

Dundalk FC defender Carl McHugh has been called into the Republic of Ireland U19 squad by Paul Doolin.

Donegal-born McHugh, who is currently on loan at Oriel Park from English Championship club Reading, will travel to Bulgaria where the Irish face Bulgaria (Thursday), Bosnia and Herzegovina (Saturday) and Russia (Tuesday) in a mini-tournament in 2012 UEFA European U19 Football Championship qualification.

As a result, the 18-year-old will miss Dundalk’s two games next week, away to Sligo Rovers on Tuesday night and at home to Derry City on Saturday afternoon.

Everyone at Dundalk FC would like to wish Carl the best of luck with the U19s.
