Ireland Had A Bit Of A Party In The Aviva Stadium After England’s Loss

The Big Cheese.

Ireland enjoyed a bit of a mini-party at the Aviva yesterday evening, as they claimed their third Six Nations title in five years, this time with a round to spare.

After doing the business against Scotland, securing a bonus-point win, Ireland knew England would need a bonus-point win of their own against France to have any chance of stealing the title from them

But England couldn’t even manage a win, never mind a try-bonus win. With France leading 16-9, and only a few minutes remaining, Dan Leavy spoke to RTÉ’s Micil Glennon, and it appears celebrations had already begun.


“James Ryan ‘The Cheese’ has got the tunes playing, which is always good,” said the Ireland flanker.

“U2 was on for a bit, a bit of Daft Punk so yeah, we are enjoying ourselves.

“[James]calls himself ‘The Big Cheese’. He’s our resident DJ. Yeah, it’s weird (that he’s playing old music).

“I think that could be his dad’s influence on him but he loves rap, he’s got an eclectic mix.”

But it appears the champagne wasn’t on ice…

“No Champagne” Ireland head Joe Schmidt said when asked if they are ready to celebrate.

That will be reserved for next week. We hope.
