The Ireland Players Had A Ball Celebrating Their Grand Slam Triumph

The Ireland Players Had A Ball Celebrating Their Grand Slam Triumph

For a host of the Ireland squad, this was their first taste of Six Nations and Grand Slam glory. It had been just over five years since Ireland won their third ever Grand Slam in Twickenham back in 2018 and since then, the squad has seen a big overhaul.

After dominating the international rugby scene for the past 12 months, which has seen this phenomenal group of players win a test series in New Zealand for the first time and beat the likes of Australia and South Africa before winning this year's Grand Slam, the Irish players certainly let their hair down yesterday evening.

After celebrating out on the pitch with their families, the party soon started inside the dressing rooms of the Aviva Stadium.

Ireland players celebrate their Grand Slam win

Peter O'Mahony shared this post earlier today which included some brilliant photos of him with his family after the historic win. The first photo is somewhat of an iconic snap, showing him and long-term Ireland teammate Johnny Sexton on a lap of honour of the Aviva pitch alongside his four children.

Jack Conan shared this picture to his Instagram last night alongside Ireland's centre pairing from Saturday's win. These three have certainly scrubbed up well considering the role all of them played during the tough battle against England.


After a mammoth performance in this year's Six Nations campaign, Andrew Porter took to Instagram to share some great photos of him alongside his parents, sister and girlfriend Elaine.

World Rugby Player of the Year Josh van der Flier posted this picture of him alongside his parents and grandfather to Instagram, showing how much it means for everyone involved with the squad to win everything on offer in this year's Six Nations.


Ireland's main man and the all-time points scorer in Six Nations' history Johnny Sexton also captured the moments after his final appearance in the competition by celebrating with his children.

Two members of the Ireland squad who know exactly how it feels to win a Grand Slam were pictured after the trophy ceremony and despite winning it all before, Tadhg Furlong and Conor Murray looked emotional in this picture shared by Irish rugby on Instagram.

One of our favourite pictures from the celebrations comes courtesy of another pictured shared by Irish Rugby on Instagram. The man who has revolutionised rugby in the country since being appointed head coach after the 2019 Rugby World Cup alongside his first ever Six Nations Championship trophy.


Many players have yet to upload pictures to their social media pages yet and to say last night's celebrations were expected to be nothing less than wild, we will forgive them for not sharing them yet.
