Ireland head-coach Andy Farrell has kept faith in the 15 players who started against Wales for Sunday's Guinness Six Nations match at England.

Peter O'Mahony keeps his place in the back-row with the fit-again Caelan Doris having to settle for a place on the bench.

Doris' inclusion sees Max Deegan drop out out of the matchday 23.

O'Mahony joins Josh van der Flier and CJ Stander in the back-row, Iain Henderson and James Ryan are the locks with a front-row of Cian Healy, Rob Herring and Tadhg Furlong.

Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton's partnership continues in the half-backs with former Connacht teammates Bundee Aki and Robbie Henshaw paired in midfield.

Try-scorers against Wales, Andrew Conway and Jordan Larmour, are joined in the back-three by Jacob Stockdale.

Victory for Ireland would see them seal a 12th Triple Crown.
