Ireland will have home advantage for the Seniors Home Internationals, which get underway at Rosslare on Tuesday, 26 September.

Team captain Sean O’Leary (Mahon) can call on two members of his European championship winning side for the matches against England, Scotland and Wales.

Portmarnock’s Adrian Morrow secured the winning point against Denmark in the European final and returns to the fold alongside Tramore’s John Mitchell as Ireland bid to regain the Seniors Home Internationals having relinquished the crown in 2016.

Billy Donlon (Birr), Barry O’Leary (Greystones) and Liam Halpin (Westport) have been retained from last year’s side with Nigel Duke (Killiney) with Hugh Smyth (Mourne) completing Ireland’s seven-man lineup. Barry Doyle (Carlow) is the team manager.
