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.
Included in the club representations were Johne Murphy in the centre for Young Munster, Luke O'Dea at full-back for Shannon and Tommy O'Donnell as a try-scoring number 8 for UL Bohemians.
A notable absentee from the Munster 'A' side will be development prop Alan Cotter who has joined English club Bath on loan from today until the end of the month.
This is Cotter's second stint with an Aviva Premiership outfit after his recent spell with London Irish where he played 25 minutes of rugby in each of his three games.
Meanwhile, flanker Barry O'Mahony has been ruled out of action with a groin injury and joins fellow back rowers James Coughlan, Sean Dougall and Niall Ronan on the rehabilitation list.
It has also been confirmed that experienced lock Paul O'Connell will not play any part in the rest of Ireland's GUINNESS Series campaign this month.
