The venues have been confirmed for Ireland's two-Test Tour of Argentina this summer as Resistencia and Tucumán City.

The first Test will take place on Saturday, 7 June at the Estadio Centenario in Resistencia, the capital city of Chaco Province, which is located in the northeast of Argentina.

The second Test comes a week later on 14 June and will take place at the Estadio José Fierro in Tucumán Province in the northwest of Argentina.

Ireland have played 13 Tests against the Pumas, winning eight and losing five. 

The last Test between the two nations took place in the Aviva Stadium in November 2012 when Ireland ran out 42-24 winners.

Ireland last toured Argentina in 2007 with the Pumas claiming victory in both games on home soil.
