A sense of calm is coming from within the Ireland set-up. It’s great to see it. No matter what level they operate at in their club career, players always say that it takes time to feel comfortable at international level. I went through it myself.

Stephen Kenny suffered those growing pains and it seems as if he’s coming out on the right side of that process.
