Laura Feely set for Ireland debut in France

Donegal’s Laura Feely is in line to make her debut for the Ireland Women’s Six Nation side this weekend.
The Ballybofey native who plays her rugby with Connacht has been named among the replacements for Saturday’s game with France.
Only five of the team selected for the game against the French in Toulouse started in Ireland’s final game at the World Cup last year.
With options scarce at out-half, Niamh Briggs has been handed the number 10 jersey.
