Promising Start As Mick McCarthy's First Ireland Fixtures Confirmed

The Republic of Ireland's Euro 2020 qualification campaign gets underway on March 23 with an away game against Gibraltar.

Earlier today, Ireland were drawn in Group D along with Switzerland, Denmark, Georgia and Gibraltar. Mick McCarthy's reign will kick off in less than four months as Ireland look to chart their way back to the European Championships.

The first home game of the campaign sees Ireland welcome Georgia to the Aviva Stadium on March 26. In June, there is a doubleheader with Ireland set to travel to Denmark on June 7 while welcoming Gibraltarย to Dublin three days later.

Speaking to RTE after the draw, New Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy was upbeat about a re-match against the Danes.

I watched the [Nations League] games then and there were some decent results against them.

We'll be trying our best to beat all the teams and whatever's gone on with Denmark in the past is in the past. There's nothing I can do about that.
