A 33-man Ireland squad have been announced as preparations continue for the opening game of the Six Nations against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.
In total there are 11 players included in the squad from the O2 Ireland Wolfhounds side that narrowly lost to the England Saxons in Galway on Friday.
Both Dave McSharry and Paddy Jackson had both picked up minor knocks from that game, but both injuries were not serious enough to rule them out of joining up with the rest of the squad in Carton House on Sunday evening.
The Ireland team to play Wales will be announced on Tuesday.
Ireland training squad: Michael Bent, Rory Best, Tom Court, Sean Cronin, Gordon D'Arcy, Keith Earls, Luke Fitzgerald, Declan Fitzpatrick, Craig Gilroy, Cian Healy, Jamie Heaslip, Iain Henderson, Chris Henry, Paddy Jackson, Rob Kearney, David Kilcoyne, Conor Murray, Mike McCarthy, Kevin McLaughlin, Fergus McFadden, Dave McSharry, Sean O’Brien, Donncha O'Callaghan, Brian O'Driscoll, Ronan O'Gara, Peter O'Mahony, Eoin Reddan, Mike Ross, Donnacha Ryan, Jonathan Sexton, Mike Sherry, Devin Toner, Simon Zebo
