Republic boss Martin O'Neill has named his final 29-man squad for his side's post season friendlies, with James McCarthy among those from the provisional party to be left out.

Everton midfielder McCarthy, West Ham defender Joey O'Brien - who had already been released from the squad so he could concentrate on his own fitness programme - and Birmingham goalkeeper Darren Randolph are the three to miss out from the original 32-man group O'Neill named earlier this month.

There is also no place for Stephen Ireland, despite O'Neill having hinted the Stoke midfielder could be drafted in.

The squad is set for four friendlies, against Turkey at the Aviva Stadium on 25 May, Italy at Fulham's Craven Cottage on 31 May, Costa Rica in Philadelphia on 6 June and Portugal in New Jersey on 10 June.
