IRELAND WILL KICK off the first Guinness Six Nations campaign of the Andy Farrell era at home to Scotland on 1 February 2020.

The fixtures for the 2020 and 2021 tournaments were announced this morning with Ireland starting next year with back-to-back home fixtures against the Scots and Wales.

A trip to face England in Twickenham in Round 3 follows before a home game against Italy and a final-weekend showdown against France in Paris on Saturday 14 March.

The 2021 campaign begins away to Wales in Cardiff on Saturday 6 February, and finishes with a mouthwatering clash against England in the Aviva Stadium on Saturday 20 March.
