Sky has unveiled a mural of Irish Internationals Katie McCabe, Denise O’Sullivan and Lucy Quinn as Ireland takes on Georgia this evening looking to continue the momentum of the World Cup Qualifiers
A 39ft x 8ft piece of artwork has been created in McCabe’s hometown of Kilmananagh only a short distance from Tallaght Stadium where the Republic of Ireland scored a record 11 goals against Georgia earlier in the campaign.
Painted by Headcase and developed by Core and award-winning illustrator and comedian, Aoife Dooley, the artwork aims to highlight the return match and encourage Irish football fans to get behind the team on their World Cup Qualifying campaign.
As part of the unveiling, McCabe’s family members were present to witness the tribute to the Irish football captain.

“We have a full squad to choose from, with no injuries, and that is a huge credit to our backroom staff because players came in from different situations regarding their fitness and whether they were in season or in pre-season,” said Team Manager Vera Pauw.
“But we have worked hard to build up their fitness during a training camp in Turkey.”
“We feel that we are ready for this game against Georgia. It is a very important game for us with the three points being our target. We know what we have to do and we will have a game-plan that will take everything into account.
“People should not expect the same situation from when we played Georgia last year because they were missing some players and they are also playing at home in this game. But we are ready; we have trained hard, prepared well and we will go out to win the game.”
The game will be played at 5 PM our time (8 PM in Gori and it will be televised live on RTÉ2.
