Peter O'Mahony Secures Hearts & Minds Of Irish Public With Late Late Appearance

Perhaps not the Irish international viewers would have expected to be on The Late Late Show in light of last weekend's famous defeat of the All Blacks, Peter O'Mahony left one helluva impression with his appearance tonight.

An instrumental player as Joe Schmidt's side recorded a first win against New Zealand in Dublin, the Munster man spent most of his slot speaking about family, friends and life after such a momentous win.

During a ranging discussion on the show, O'Mahony dwelt on the ever-lasting influence Anthony Foley has had on his rugby career.

From idolising him as a player, to working under him as an underage charge with Munster, many days won't go by where Peter O'Mahony doesn't think of 'Axel.'

Discussing his recent marriage proposal, his two children and the charity work it does, O'Mahony's evident decency won him plenty of plaudits.

Not all that comfortable in the limelight, the Irish and Munster rugby legend only served to solidify the good will that has particularly built up in light of his stellar performance against the All Blacks last weekend.

Dwelling briefly on last weekend's win, Peter O'Mahony couldn't help but point out the incredible reception Ireland received before and after the highly-anticipated test match.

An all-round lovely interview with the rarely seen O'Mahony, you'll be able to watch it back later on the RTÉ Player.
