The lads are becoming a bit of an internet sensation appearing on highland radio and doing an interview with donegaldaily.com -

Two rugby fans from Donegal have packed in their jobs in a kangaroo meat factory to follow the Irish rugby team around New Zealand in a clapped out van.

Brothers Daniel and Kevin O’Connor and their cousin Daniel McLaughlin threw caution to the wind have even painted the van in the Irish colours.

Daniel, from Letterkenny, says they are having the times of their lives following Brian O’Driscoll and the lads.

“We are having a blast. You only live once. We bought the van and we decided to paint in all over with a tri-colour. We’re now putting on the scores as we go along.

“Everyone is asking us to stop and have their picture taken with us. It’s great craic,” he said.

Daniel and cousin Kevin were working in Brisbane in Australia but decided to join the other Daniel in New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup.

They originally only planned to come to New Zealand for the weekend but are now planning on staying until Ireland are knocked out!
