Head coach Andy Farrell has named a 36 man Ireland squad for the Six Nations.

Four Connacht Players receive the call-up, Bundee Aki, Quinn Roux, Dave Heffernan and Ultane Dillane.

Two Mayo natives are represented in the squad, Dave Heffernan and Caelan Doris.

Munster's Craig Casey and Ulster's Tom O'Toole are the only uncapped players named ahead of the opening game against Wales on the 7th of February.

There's no place for Jacob Stockdale, who is unavailable for the trip to Cardiff due to a knee injury but Johnny Sexton, Iain Henderson, Tadhg Furlong, Peter O'Mahony and James Lowe are all selected, despite injury concerns.
