The Ireland squad for the forthcoming summer tour to New Zealand and Australia and the 'A' squad for the Churchill Cup in America will be announced exclusively on IrishRugby.ie on Wednesday (May 17) at 2.00pm before being released later in the day to the media.
Ireland coach Eddie O'Sullivan will announce the two squads tomorrow via the website. Ireland will play two Tests in New Zealand and one in Australia while the 'A' side travel to America to take part in the Churchill Cup - this will be a great opportunity for some of the upcoming players to enhance their chances and to gain valuable game time at a high level.
The Irish team will be in camp in Limerick at the end of the month before flying off to New Zealand.
