There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
Girvan retired from the game in May after making 175 appearances for Leinster in a career spanning 14 years in which he won Celtic League, Magners League and Heineken Cup honours.
He explained: "It was a huge honour to be acknowledged first and foremost by my peers and I am very grateful to Terenure College for staging the event.
"They put on an amazing show, which a lot of my provincial and international colleagues attended, and it made me feel incredibly humbled.
