Ireland will kick off their TikTok Women’s Six Nations campaign away to Wales on March 25 next year, with the tournament once again going ahead in a different window to the men’s competition.
Greg McWilliams’ side will be determined to improve on last year’s fourth placed finish and with the games set to be broadcast on RTÉ and Virgin there’ll be plenty of exposure.
By the time the tournament kicks off, the IRFU hope to have contracts in place for leading players.
Ireland will host France in Round Two on April 1, before travelling to Italy on April 15.
World Cup favourites England are in town on April 22, with Ireland’s competition ending away to Scotland on April 29.
Ireland are the only Six Nations team not at this year’s World Cup and they are hoping to steal a march on their rivals who are pouring their efforts into the tournament in New Zealand next month.
Although the dates have been announced, it’s not yet known where Ireland will play after taking their home games to Dublin, Cork and Belfast last season.
Similarly, venues for their away games have yet to be fixed.
