Martin O’Neill and his management team of Roy Keane, Steve Guppy and Seamus McDonagh have departed the Ireland set-up. The announcement was made this morning with the decision described in the standard fashion as ‘mutual agreement’. Defence coach Steve Walford had previously moved on for personal reasons. The announcement was made this morning and followed a meeting, believed to be in London, last evening between Chief Executive John Delaney and O’Neill. The standard acknowledgements have been made by the Association and the search for a new manager is now set in motion.
