Ireland head coach Adam Griggs has named a squad of 26 players for a training camp ahead of the Women's Six Nations.

The squad will travel to Cardiff in the coming days for a training weekend which will finish with an uncapped match against Wales on Sunday afternoon.

Dorothy Wall and Claire Keohane are the only two uncapped players included in the squad.

Speaking to about the weekend, Griggs said:

“We have had two quality camps in January and the attitude and application from the players has been excellent. We have had to make some tough decisions reducing the squad to 26 for this weekend, but these are the sort of headaches that we, as a coaching group, want.

"This warm up fixture against Wales will provide the platform for us to fine-tune our game and test ourselves in areas we have been working on under match intensity heading into the Six Nations which is always of great value to the coaching group and players.

"We’ve a good mix of youth and experience with this selection and they will get the first opportunity of 2020 to represent our group and have the chance to stake their claim for the jersey before we start the tournament in Energia Park.”
