Ireland have named a 28-man squad for this summer's World Rugby U20 Championships in France.

St. Mary's College's Caelan Doris, who was awarded a senior contract by Leinster last week, will captain the side.

Doris, along with fellow forwards Diarmuid Barron and Jordan Duggan and backs; Conor Dean and Michael Silvester are all set to feature at their second U20 World Championships, having been involved in Georgia last summer.

Prop Joe Byrne, hooker Dan Sheehan, wings Dan Hurley and Tom Roche and centre Peter Sylvester are all in line for their first U20 caps in France.

Ireland share Pool C with France, Georgia and South Africa and will face the hosts on the opening day of the tournament in Perpignan.

Head coach Noel McNamara said: "It’s an exciting time for the players and management as we prepare to head to the south of France for the U20 World Championships.

There’s a lot of talent in this squad and the players are all preparing well.

We’re up against three physical sides in our pool, and with France up first, it will be a great test for the players on the opening day of the tournament and something that everyone is looking forward to."
