James Lowe is one of three uncapped players named in Andy Farrell's 34-man Ireland squad as the build-up begins for the Guinness Series and Autumn Nations Cup fixtures.

New Zealand born wing Lowe is now eligible to play for Ireland, qualifying to pull on the green shirt through World Rugby's three-year residency rule.

That rule has been extended to five years but Lowe arrived in Ireland when the three-year protocol existed.

The uncapped trio of Lowe, Shane Daly and Billy Burns all come in to the squad, while Jack Carty drops out.

Ireland play Wales at home on Friday 13 November and then travel to London to play England at Twickenham on Saturday 21 November. 

The following Sunday, Ireland will host Georgia at the Aviva Stadium and will complete the series of international fixtures on Saturday 5 December against either Fiji, France, Italy or Scotland.

Kieran Marmion and Quinn Roux will be available to Connacht this week and join the national squad on Sunday. 

Jack Conan is rehabbing an issue in camp that hasn't settled so will return to Leinster to continue his rehab programme.

All games will be televised on RTÉ.
