The Grand Slam winning trio of Josh van der Flier, Andrew Porter, and Dan Sheehan appeared on the Late Late Show yesterday evening, and gave the low down on the Irish team's celebrations.

They discussed the three days of partying, and remarked that the on-pitch festivities with their families, after final whistle on Saturday, were the most memorable.

Dan Sheehan told the story of the third day, which saw team book a party bus before going on a 'little tour' with their Dads.

We had a little bit of a tour on Monday evening with a party bus and we picked up all of our Dads.

We kidnapped them from their houses at six o'clock in the evening.

My Dad probably was out the door before I had gotten off the bus he was so happy to see us.

The main video doing the rounds saw the team visit the house of Garry Ringrose.

In the clip the Irish team can be seen singing happy birthday in Ringrose's family kitchen, and Sheehan explained that they popped in to sing to his Mum, before heading into town.

"It was Garry's Mum's Birthday, so we decided we'd show up and sing her Happy Birthday in her kitchen.


"Garry was with us, Garry was definitely with us.

"Abducted Garry, his old man, then went into town."

The players were soon back with their provinces, with Champions Cup knock-outs to prepare for next weekend.


Leinster face off against Ulster next Saturday, with Munster facing the Sharks, and Connacht take on Benetton in the Challenge Cup.
