Ireland have named a 36-man squad for the first of three summer training camps, which gets underway in Belfast next week.
The squad consists of players that were involved in the summer tours to North America and the Churchill Cup during May and June as well as several senior players who were not included for the summer tours.
There have been no players who toured South Africa with the British & Irish Lions over the earlier part of the summer named in the squad, whilst players recovering from injuries have also been overlooked.
The camp begins on July 26 in Northern Ireland, lasting for three days, with the other two sessions taking place in August and September.
