Kelleher will be managed by the Ireland medical team over the coming days.

The uncapped Stewart is a former Ireland Under-20 international who played twice for Emerging Ireland last year starting in the victories over the Griquas and the Cheetahs.

The Ireland coaching group also included him in the match-day preparations for Ireland A’s game against the All Blacks XV in November.

Stewart’s addition brings the number of Emerging Ireland tourists in the senior squad to five – Jack Crowley, Joe McCarthy, Jamie Osborne and Cian Prendergast.

The squad will continue to train at The Campus in Quinta da Lago before flying to Cardiff on Thursday ahead of the opening round of the 2023 Six Nations Championships.
