IRELAND HAVE MADE 13 players available for provincial duty this week, while a trimmed group of 23 will head south for a two-day training camp in Cork.

Ultan Dillane, David Heffernan (Connacht), Max Deegan, Dave Kearney, Ronan Kelleher, Luke McGrath, Will Connors (Leinster), Chris Farrell, Jack O’Donoghue (Munster), Billy Burns, Stuart McCloskey, Jack McGrath and Tom O’Toole (Ulster) have all returned to their respective provinces to get some game time under their belts in what is a Six Nations off-week.

Ireland will host an open training session in Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) on Thursday, and also train alongside the Ireland U20s. Tickets for the session are available on Ticketmaster.
