Saturday, St Patrick’s Day, saw Ireland face England away in their final fixture of the Six Nations Championship.

Ireland and Wales finally faced off at Ashbourne, and it was worth the wait. As with the game against Italy, Ireland racked up six tries. Unlike the game against Italy, the opposition failed to make an impact near Ireland’s try line. Ireland’s revenge for last year’s narrow loss was sweet.

Ireland finally got through 80 minutes of play at home, and in the process firmly put behind them the narrow loss away against France and the abandoned Wales home fixture.

In what was Ireland’s first full game of the Six Nations tournament this year, the team faced heartbreak losing to France by just one point.
