CHRIS Farrell has been named in the 36-man Ireland squad for the upcoming Six Nations Championship.

Former Clogher Valley man Farrell (right), who now plays for Munster, will be hoping to add to the 14 caps he has won, to date, for Ireland.

Andy Farrell’s side begin their campaign with an away game against Wales on Sunday, February 7, and this will be followed a week later with a meeting with France at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin.

A trip to Rome to play Italy and a clash with Scotland in Edinburgh are next up for Ireland, before England visit Dublin in the last round of the Championship on March 20.
