Youth career

Breslin's father was a coach for a local team in Dublin and the youngster trained with them. He was kicking a ball from the moment he could walk. He played for a team called St Kevin's and was spotted by Wolves when he played in a Dublin district team in the Kennedy Cup. He began playing for Wolves at U16 level, travelling backwards and forwards across the Irish Sea. Then he was offered a scholarship and moved across full time. He was also a keen Gaelic footballer but had to give that up on joining Wolves.


He has represented the Republic of Ireland regularly at youth levels, including six games in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship.
