Head coach Greg McWilliams has made five changes to the Ireland team play France on Saturday to the one which performed so disappointingly against Wales last weekend in their opening game of the Six Nations.
There are two changes in the backline with Vicky Irwin coming in for the injured Enya Breen at inside centre, while Dannah O'Brien is promoted from the bench and will start at out-half in place of Nicole Cronin who takes a spot among the replacements.
Sadhbh McGrath drops to the bench with Linda Djougang moving to loosehead and Christy Haney coming in at tighthead. There are two changes in the backrow with Grace Moore starting at openside in place of Maeve Óg O’Leary and Deirbhile Nic a Bháird at number eight instead of the benched Brittany Hogan.
Clara Nielson and Kathryn Buggy come into the match day squad and are in line to make their Ireland debuts off the bench.
"Last week was a disappointing start to the campaign for us but we turned the page quickly and were honest with ourselves," said McWilliams.
"We know this journey is going to take time and require patience, and we are working hard as a group to learn those lessons and make positive progress every time we step on the field.
"Saturday is another opportunity for us to do that and returning to Musgrave Park is an exciting prospect for us all. The support of our home crowd, family and friends is so important to us, and with the backing of the Irish people, we can make strides in the right direction."
