Richard Dunne believes that Martin O'Neill will be successful as Republic of Ireland head coach.
Queens Park Rangers defender Richard Dunne has said that Martin O'Neill is a "great appointment" for the Republic of Ireland.
The 61-year-old was confirmed as the new head coach on Tuesday, with former Sunderland boss Roy Keane as his assistant.
Dunne believes that O'Neill will be successful in the role.
"I think it's a great appointment," Dunne told Sky Sports News.
"He'll certainly get everyone up for the games with his motivational skills - those are well known. He's got a good squad of players and it will give everyone a fresh start."
Dunne has won 79 caps for Ireland since making his debut in 2000.
