"We are really excited to announce our squad for the season ahead," said head coach Griggs.

"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."

UL Bohemians' Ciara Griffin will once again captain the Ireland Women's team, with Enya Breen, Eimear Considine, Nicole Cronin and Laura Sheehan also selected.

"There's a good mix of youth and experience throughout the squad which will drive our standards and make sure there is high quality competition for places as we head towards the Six Nations and the 2021 Rugby World Cup qualifiers," said Griggs.
