There are also first senior call-ups for Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers and Newport County striker Padraig Amond, with the squad to be finalised ahead of the "3" FAI International Awards on Sunday, March 17 with the players undergoing their first session at the FAI National Training Centre on Monday, March 18.

"I'd sooner have a fellow who might put the ball in the net".

"It could be beneficial and good for him to feel important again", the Everton manager said.

McCarthy has no doubt that League One James Collins and League Two Padraig Amond - who scored against Leicester City, Middlesbrough and Manchester City in this season's FA Cup - have the ability and form to step up to senior worldwide football if required. He's not started a game for a long time but I think he's one of our best midfield players. Notably McCarthy did refer to this only being the provisional squad but believes Whelan is a player who can still possibly be used in certain games, whether that will be in the March double header remains to be seen. I want to meet him ASAP. At least there is some understanding of playing together with those two. "I stressed to him that if he wants to be involved in June we'll have to get it done as quickly as possible".

McCarthy has also been in touch with Daryl Murphy about the Nottingham Forest striker coming out of retirement.

"I don't think it can be easily dismissed when players are playing at their level and scoring goals." said McCarthy when asked about the new faces in the squad. I did say that "If I need you and I called you.' and I think the final answer was 'We'll see" so it wasn't a no.

"He's at an age where he likes to have that time off when the global breaks come".

The Republic will take on Gibraltar away from home on Saturday 23 March, before returning home to tackle Georgia in Dublin on Tuesday 26 March 2019.
