Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations match in February, while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
Both Girvan Dempsey and Geordan Murphy are continuing their rehabilitation from Achilles tendon and hip injuries respectively. No decision has been made, at this point, regarding their availability for the game against England.
The Ireland team and replacements for that clash at Twickenham will be confirmed by coach Eddie O'Sullivan at lunch-time on Tuesday.
