Stephen Kenny is set to depart his role with Dundalk FC to take over managing the Ireland Under-21 team and will replace Mick McCarthy as Republic of Ireland manager after the Euro 2020 finals. 

As has been reported by RTE News this evening, Kenny has been appointed Under-21 manager, taking over from Noel King.

Stephen Kenny will leave his role at Oriel Park, ending a hugely successful spell that yielded four league titles in five seasons, which included two double winning title seasons.

RTE say Kenny will also oversee the development of underage players from the Under-15 to Under-19 grade.
