This will be the first time both teams will face one another, with Zambia securing a spot in this years World Cup for the first time ever. They finished 3rd in the Women's Africa Cup of Nations after beating Nigeria, who are in Ireland's group for the World Cup, 1-0 in the third-place play-off.
The game will take place 2 weeks before Ireland take on France, also in Tallaght Stadium, after which they will depart on their World Cup campaign.
Currently, Ireland are at a training camp in Spain where they are also playing behind-closed-doors games against Germany, which occurred last Friday, and China PR, which takes place on Wednesday. The team will also embark on another camp in April with details to follow.
