Leinster's James Lowe is one of three uncapped players named in Andy Farrell's 34-man Ireland squad for the Autumn Nations Cup.

The New Zealand-born winger qualifies to play for Ireland through the World Rugby residency rule.

Munster's Shane Daly and Ulster's Billy Burns also come into the squad for the games against Wales, England and Georgia.

Kieran Marmion and Quinn Roux will be available to Connacht this weekend and will then join up with the Ireland squad on Sunday.

Keith Earls is back in the squad after a recent back injury but Jack Conan misses out due to injury, while Farrell will also be without the likes of Tadhg Furlong, Garry Ringrose, Jordan Larmour and Will Addison.

Ireland play Wales in their opening game at the Aviva Stadium on November 13th.

After that, it's a trip to Twickenham to face England on November 21st and the following weekend Ireland will host Georgia at the Aviva Stadium.

The last game will take place on December 5th against either Fiji, France, Italy or Scotland.
