The welcome France to Dublin on Sunday.
Ireland scrum-half Conor Murray says the players know they need to quickly shake off Sunday's defeat to Wales in rugby union's Six Nations.
Despite Ireland leading in the game, the home side made a comeback in Cardiff to take the victory.
Andy Farrell will name his side on Friday with Rhys Ruddock expected to earn his first Six Nations start in the back row.
Murray says there's no point in allowing heads to drop ahead of this Sunday's game against France.
