The FAI have appointed Vera Pauw as the new manager of our Senior Women’s team. The 56 year old Dutch woman was capped 89 times by Holland during an illustrious playing career.
She was among the early group of women to play professional football when she moved to Italy where she played for Modena.
Following her playing retirement Vera entered the world of coaching and management where she has taken senior management roles with Scotland, her native Holland, Russia and South Africa. She has also spent a period as an advisor to the Thailand FA.
More recently, Vera spent one season in club football at the helm of Houston Dash in the USA.
Vera will be in charge of Ireland for our next European Championship qualifier against Ukraine in Tallaght Stadium on Tuesday the 8th October 2019.
