The team received a welcome boost last night with the news the entire coaching ticket have signed new contracts.
Martin O’Neill, Roy Keane and coaches Steve Guppy, Seamus McDonagh and Steve Walford have all agreed new two-year extensions that will see them stay in charge of the team until after the 2018 World Cup campaign.
