Ireland Women's head coach Philip Doyle has named an extended 33-player training squad ahead of the IRB Women's Rugby World Cup in Marcoussis, France in August.
The most notable absentee from the selected squad is scrum half Amy Davis who is ruled out through injury.

Niamh Briggs, Lynne Cantwell and Grand Slam-winning captain Fiona Coghlan are also named in the training squad.
The Ireland Women face defending champions New Zealand, USA and Kazakhstan in Pool B of the Women's World Cup.
The girls in green kick off the tournament against the USA on Friday. August 1. Next up is New Zealand on Tuesday, August 5 with their final pool game against Kazakhstan on Saturday, August 9.
Head coach Philip Doyle commented: "Over the coming months we will host a number of training camps in preparation for the World Cup.
"We played some pretty good rugby during the Six Nations but we will need to find another level if we are to compete with the world's best sides."

Listen to post-match reaction from captains Anton Lienert-Brown and Peadar Timmins following the Ireland Under-20s' 45-23 loss to New Zealand in the IRB Junior World Championship 3rd/4th place play-off at Eden Park.
Earlier this week the Ireland squad and management were guests at a reception in Buenos Aires hosted by James McIntyre, the Irish Ambassador to Argentina. We spoke to team manager Michael Kearney and IRFU President Pat Fitzgerald on the night.
Looking forward to the second Test against Argentina, Iain Henderson said: "We need to get our breakdown right and make sure we get a good return from our set piece. If we do that, the backs will look after the rest for us."
Ireland Under-20 head coach Mike Ruddock was 'really pleased' with the performance of his players as they claimed a 38-0 bonus point win over Fiji to advance to the IRB Junior World Championship semi-finals as Pool B winners.
