Full-back Girvan Dempsey has been named in Ireland's 33-man training squad for a two-day training session this week after recovering from the injury which ruled him out of the 37-13 RBS 6 Nations win in Rome.
Having got their campaign off to a flying start with two away wins against Scotland and Italy, coach Eddie O'Sullivan is already turning his thoughts to the visit of France to Lansdowne Road on March 8.
Front-row Reggie Corrigan has been added to the lengthy Irish casualty list after suffering a suspected broken wrist during the Italian win.
But fly-half Ronan O'Gara has been included in the squad despite missing out at the Stadio Flaminio through injury.
O'Sullivan and his fellow selectors will trim the squad to 22 players following the get-together and will name the team to play France on Tuesday, March 4.
