City of Armagh RFC youngster Paul Mullen has been selected for the Irish international under-18 squad.
Paul, a tight-head prop for the city club, found the news out by letter earlier this week and was understandably delighted.
The 17-year-old from Keady, plays with the under-18 squad and is currently one of four City of Armagh squad members playing for the Ulster under-19 squad.
He plays alongside neighbour Barry Finn as well as Aaron Kennedy and Cormac Fox.

Paul joins up with the Ireland squad in Tipperary on October 28.
We at Armagh I would like to wish Paul all the best and congratulations on a tremendous.
