Ireland have announced their Under 15 squad which will play four games in England next month against Middlesex and Berkshire.

There are seven players from the Leinster region, with Jamie Forbes and Wilhelm de Klerk from YMCA. Balbriggan's Eoin Birch, Merrion's Daniel Forkin, Ahmed Shah of Phoenix, Mark Tonge of Leinster, and North County's Luke Whelan.

The NCU have four representatives, with James Rose and Rory Ellerby of Instonians joined by Matthew Daly and Sam Topping from Waringstown.

The NW supply two players, Scott MacBeth of St Johnston and Raymond Curry of Bonds Glen.

The U15 interprovincial series takes place next week in the NCU area, and those players not selected will be hoping to produce eye catching displays for Head Coach Callum Atkinson ahead of a series against traditional rivals Scotland in the Celtic Cup in Ayr, scheduled for August 6-9.
