Interim Ireland head coach Les Kiss has confirmed that back rower Peter O'Mahony will captain the squad for the summer tour to North America, following Rory Best's call-up to the British & Irish Lions squad.
A member of NIFC, he was capped as a back row forward for Ireland on five occasions in 1938-39, following in the footsteps of his father Samuel who won nine caps between 1900 and 03.
The Irwins were the first father and son combination to be Presidents of the IRFU, Samuel in 1935-36 and Sinclair in 1969-70. They were both also Presidents of the Ulster Branch.
