Munster Rugby recently held a 'Play Rugby' workshop for sixth class pupils and teachers at Murroe National School, County Limerick.
Cork players Max Abbott from Presentation Brothers College and Charlie Slowley from Christian Brothers College have also been included in the 26 man squad.
The Ireland U-18 Schools will warm up for their defence of the FIRA/AER European U-18 Championship with a pre tournament friendly against Scotland in Coolmine RFC on Sunday, March 25th, k.o. 12 noon.
This year's Justin Bridou U-18 European Championship takes place in Spain with Ireland drawn in the Elite group alongside England, Wales, France, Scotland, Italy, Georgia and Portugal.
Ireland won the tournament in France last year for the first time having previously reached two finals with the U-18 Club team.
The U-18 Schools, who beat a fancied England team by 17 - 8 to take the title in 2011, will play Portugal in Ciudad Universitaria in Madrid in their opening game. The winner will progress to a semi final where they will face either France or Scotland.
Terry McMaster will coach the 26 man squad with the assistance of Paul Barr and Kenny Hooks.
