After a dire run of results, which included more than six-and-a-half hours without a solitary goal, the FAI decided to dispense with boss Martin O’Neill and his assistant Roy Keane earlier today, bringing to an end their five-year reign in charge.
After being relegated from League B in the Nations League, the job for whoever is drafted in to replace O’Neill is a pretty big one, but the current Hibs manager seems to be continuously cropping up on social media.
Having led to Hibees to promotion from the Championship at the first time of asking, Lennon has developed the Edinburgh club into one of the best clubs in Scotland – leading many to believe the former Northern Ireland captain is the man to bring the good times back to the Aviva Stadium:
Get Neil Lennon on the phone @FAIreland

I'd strongly consider giving the Ireland job to Neil Lennon. I reckon we could afford him and he has a relatively decent record. I'm sure he would be interested.

I'd take a Neil Lennon or Stephen Kenny. Get Sam Allardyce & you can shut the doors of the Aviva.#fai
