Mixed News For Ireland Players As Hull Announce Contract Releases

Mixed News For Ireland Players As Hull Announce Contract Releases
By Conor O'Leary Updated

It hasn't been a great week for the Irish contingent at Hull City having been relegated on the final day of the Premier League season.

This means that the likes of David Meyler and Robbie Brady will be playing their football in the Championship next season, which can't be good news for Ireland boss Martin O'Neill.

Now it looks like Paul McShane won't be joining them. The Wicklow defender ends his seven year spell with the Tigers after his contract expired and Hull have decided to release him along with six other players including Liam Rosenior and Steven Harper following their relegation.

One positive for Irish football is that midfielder Stephen Quinn has earned himself a new contract and will be part of Hull's push for immediate promotion back into the big league.


McShane leaves Hull after joining them from Sunderland, initially on loan in August 2008. The Greystones defender made 136 appearances for the club, starting 19 times in the league this season, while Quinn was deemed to have done enough to earn a new contract this season in his 28 league appearances.

It's unfortunate for McShane, who will now be looking for a new club. There is likely to be some interest in the versatile 29 year old defender
