"A 21st minute penalty from Ruesha Littlejohn gave the Republic of Ireland a deserved victory over Haiti in a international friendly at Central Boward Regional Park in Laurderhill, Florida (USA) in the early hours of this morning.

May 2, 2015 - roster named for USA & Haiti friendlies
"Ireland will play World No.2 USA on Sunday, May 10, in San Jose before playing Haiti three days later in Lauderhill, Florida. The USA game will be shown live on Setanta Ireland at 8.06pm while the Haiti game kicks off at 1am (Irish time) on the morning of Thursday, May 14. Because the matches are outside the international calendar Ronan has been forced to plan without many of her established players who are based overseas and will face the Americans without first choice players Emma Byrne, Niamh Fahey, Louise Quinn, Sophie Perry and Diane Caldwell, who are all required by their clubs that weekend. Byrne and Fahey will link up with the squad for the Haiti game while Fiona O’Sullivan, who hails from California, has been given permission by Notts County to play in the USA game. The squad includes Stephanie Roche and Megan Campbell who are based in America, as well as International Player of the Year, Julie Ann Russell. It also includes Continental Tyres Women’s National League Player of the Year, Aine O’Gorman, who won her 75th cap last month against Spain." - Womens Soccer United

"Republic of Ireland Women’s National Team manager Sue Ronan has handed striker Megan Connolly an early 18th birthday present by including the U19 international in her 21 strong squad for next month’s Istria Cup. Connolly, who has scored 13 goals in 23 competitive games at U17 and U19 international level, turns 18 on March 7 and will celebrate it in Croatia after receiving her first call-up to the senior squad. She is one of six uncapped players in the squad and will be joined three other members of last year’s U19 team which reached the semi-finals of the European Championships in Norway – Sarah Rowe, Katie McCabe and Lauren Dwyer.... The other uncapped players are Wexford Youths’ Carol Breen and English-based Emma Beckett who is currently unattached. Both were in the squad that took part in the Winter Training Camp in La Manga last month and played in the training game against Norway on January 15. Rianna Jarrett, who was also on the trip to La Manga, sustained an ACL injury in the Norway game and underwent surgery last Friday.... The squad includes FIFA Puskas Award runner-up Stephanie Roche, who has just signed for American side Houston Dash, and Denise O’Sullivan who was the Players’ Player of the Year in Scotland in 2014 and is currently preparing for the last eight of the UEFA Women’s Champions League with Glasgow City." - Womens Soccer United
