Athlone Duo Make The Cut For Ireland's Six Nations Squad

Robbie Henshaw and Jack Carty will both expect to be involved.

Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has included six uncapped players in his squad for the final two Six Nations games against Italy and France later this month.

There's no place for the injured Tadhg Furlong in the 35-man squad, while Ulster scrum half John Cooney misses out.

Ryan Baird, Ed Byrne, Will Connors, Shane Daly, Hugo Keenan and Jamison Gibson Park have all been called up for the first time.

Ireland face Italy at the Aviva Stadium on the 24th of October before taking on France in Paris seven days later.
