Claire Molloy, Hannah Casey and Sene Naoupu have all been named in the Barbarians squad that will face England at Twickenham on June 2.
The Barbarians women's squad is a new concept that was only initiated three years ago, but after wins against Munster, the British Army and the USA, the famous outfit will play the Red Roses as a curtain-raiser before the men's sides take each other on for the Quilter Cup.
It sheds a positive light on the calendar year thus far for women's rugby on the island after the Irish Six Nations side performed below-par during the spring campaign.

Between the three of them, the Irish players have a combined total of 110 international caps between them, bringing a wealth of experience to the home of English rugby with them.
Speaking at the announcment of the game back in February, Barbarians FC Chairman John Spencer said:
The Barbarians successfully launched its women’s team two years ago to bring together talented individuals and create a team that plays with a unique spirit of adventure and enjoyment.For them to face an international side is a great opportunity for the club to have two teams taking on England at Twickenham and means we can showcase all that is good about the game.
