Ireland Claim Six Nations Title

 

Updated : Mar 22, 2009

Ireland has claimed our first Grand Slam in 61 years after beating Wales in a dramatic Six Nations climax. The Irish went to Cardiff and won 15-17, defeating Wales at the Millennium Stadium

The Taoiseach has led the tributes to the Irish rugby team who have won the Six Nations grand slam for the first time since 1948. Mr Cowen said: 'It has truly been a most memorable season in Irish rugby history and great credit is due to the Coach Declan Kidney, Team Captain Brian O'Driscoll and the entire playing squad'.

The Irish also added a Triple Crown for good measure after recovering from a 6-0 interval deficit. Tries from man of the match Brian O'Driscoll and Tommy Bowe, both within six minutes after the interval, put Ireland on course for victory. But Irish fly-half Ronan O'Gara dropped a goal three minutes from time give Ireland the lead. A last minute penalty for Wales shredded Irish nerves, but Stephen Jones's kick fell short.

Speaking after the game, Captain Brian O'Driscoll said he delighted with the win. A civic reception for the team is to be held at the Mansion House in Dublin at 4.30pm today.
