Ireland Women's head coach Adam Griggs has named a squad of 37 ahead of their busy November schedule, which will see them travel to Scotland and France for training and practice games ahead of a match against Wales in UCD Bowl on 10 November.
There are 10 uncapped players who have been named after an impressive Interpro series which saw Leinster overcome Connacht in a hard-fought final on Saturday evening.
Leinster’s Judy Bobbett, Victoria Dabanovich-O'Mahony, Grace Miller, Niamh Ni Dhroma and Katie O'Dwyer all come in to the squad.
They are joined by Shannon Touhey from Connacht and Dorothy Wall from Munster, who will also make their first appearance in a national squad.
Mary Healy, a former Leinster Under-18 squad member who is currently studying at Lindenwood College in the USA, was invited to international training camps throughout the summer while home and, as part of the IQ player programme, has been tracked and identified to come back into the national team set-up.
Griggs said: "We are really excited to name our squad for the season ahead.
"The Interpros have identified some brilliant talent and with the extended games and finals series players had the opportunity to show their skill and grow throughout the competition.
"It has been a very tough selection process and we have picked players purely on form. We are confident we have a really strong group to take us through this autumn."
"Shannon Touhey from Connacht had an outstanding series, helping Connacht to the final and she now gets the opportunity.
"Leinster’s Hannah O’Connor, who has been part of the national set up now for over a year, also stood out for her performance’s during the Interpros and will be striving to earn her first cap for country."
