Martin O'Neill has named his squad for the Republic of Ireland's end-of-season friendlies.

Among those getting a call were Ipswich Town's Daryl Murphy and Norwich City's Anthony Pilkington and Wes Hoolahan.

Former Town stars Damien Delaney and Jonathan Walters will also feature.

O'Neill said the games against Turkey, Italy, Costa Rica and Portugal would help him get to know his squad. "The matches will be about getting to know the players better and changing them around a little bit in terms of personnel in different matches."
