Farrell confirms 36-man Ireland squad ahead of England clash on Sunday

21-year-old Caelan Doris is fit again and back in contention.

IRELAND BOSS ANDY Farrell has confirmed a 36-man Ireland squad to prepare for Sunday’s Six Nations clash with England.

The uncapped Leinster back row Will Connors and Ulster tighthead Tom O’Toole have retained their places in a settled squad.

Garry Ringrose misses out due to the hand injury he suffered in Ireland’s opening win over Scotland, but 21-year-old number eight Caelan Doris is back in contention after recovering from concussion.
