Ireland Women's Sevens head coach Jon Skurr has announced a 12-woman squad for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow (June 29-30).
Coach Pat Murray has made seven changes to the Irish side which lost 37-6 to Wales in their final warm-up fixture earlier this month.
UCC utility back Eric Moloney comes in for Robert Boles on the right win, with Portadown's Dale Black getting the nod on the left flank.
Exiles props Callum Black and Brendan Lynch replace Munster pair Gary Walsh and Kevin Griffin up front, while UCC's Fergal Walsh has made way in the second row from the ample 6ft 10in frame of Lansdowne's Devon Toner.
In the back row, Blackrock captain Darren O'Reilly replaces withdrawn Ard Scoil Ris star David Sherry (leg), while another of the Munster Academy - Barry O'Mahony - earns a flanker spot ahead of Daniel Dawson (Cooke).
Murray confirmed: "We had an encouraging training camp last week in Athlone and the players are really looking forward to getting the tournament underway tomorrow.
"We found our feet this season in the defeats against England (47-6) and Wales - so I'm happy with the progress we've made in the last month or so. It promises to be a great experience for the whole squad."
The Irish will look to talismanic captain and goal-kicker Robert Kearney - who scored his side's only points in their two 2005 fixtures - to lead their attack from full-back.
Buccaneers lock David McGowan is Ireland's only returning player from last year's tournament.
