James Cronin has been added to the Ireland squad for the upcoming Six Nations campaign after Dave Kilcoyne picked up an injury during Munster’s Champions Cup win over Castres Olympique on Sunday.

Kilcoyne is being reviewed by the Munster medical team after suffering the knock to his knee and may miss at least the beginning of Ireland’s campaign which kicks off against France in paris on Saturday, February 3rd.

The Ireland squad departed on Monday morning for a training camp in Oliva Nova in southern Spain and will return to Ireland on Friday.
