Daryl delight at Ireland Euro qualification but now his focus is on helping Town to success

Daryl Murphy says it’s a fantastic feeling having helped the Republic of Ireland qualify for the European Championship finals but his focus now is on helping Town have success this season. 

The 32-year-old striker led the line for the Irish in both their Play-Off games against Bosnia, with Martin O’Neill’s side winning 2-0 at the Aviva Stadium on Monday to clinch a 3-1 aggregate victory and a place in next summer’s finals.  

“It was an unbelievable night,” Murph told the Club website.

“At the end of the game I was sitting on the bench and I started looking around the stadium and it was incredible. The ‘Ole Ole Ole Ole’ was echoing around the place. It was a fantastic feeling at that point, knowing the team was going to the Euros. 

“We deserved it over the two legs as well. We knew what we had to do in Dublin and we were right on it.  

“At my age, it will be my last opportunity to play in a major tournament but that is a long way off at the moment. I’ll be concentrating fully now on my club football and helping Ipswich have a good season.”

There is more from Murph on Irish glory and Town goals in Saturday's matchday programme against Wolves.
