Conor Grant has been called-up to the latest Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad.
It is the midfielder's first call up to the Under-21s age group, having represented his country at Under-17 and Under-19 levels.
Ireland take on Wales in a friendly on Friday 26th March, 1pm kick-off, at Colliers Park, Wrexham.
He will face teammate Jack Vale, who is included in the Wales Under-21 squad for that fixture.
Grant has made nine appearances for Dale since joining from Sheffield Wednesday on a two-and-a-half-year deal at the end of the January transfer window.
