8 Irish rugby players who went above and beyond in World Cup ads

Come on Ireland!

THE WHOLE COUNTRY has been watching them on the telly these last few weeks as they enthral us during the Rugby World Cup.

But the heroic Irish players have been spotted elsewhere too:

1.  Like Sean O’Brien enjoying his Supermac’s here

2. And Conor Murray stopping training for the Angelus

Well played, Lifestyle Sports. An Angelus parody is always welcome.

3. Robbie Henshaw also observed it whilst eating this bowl of spaghetti

Too much? Never!

4. But our Robbie has form in the oversized bowl department

LOOK at how much cereal is in there.

5. Sean O’Brien feeling the urge to selfie

6. And all the lads singing along to Ireland’s Call with the Aer Lingus crew

The pilot giving it absolute socks – we salute you.

7. The Kearney brothers continuing their long held association with milk

The National Dairy Council, to be precise.

8. And finally, this unintentionally gas ad placement given the sad news about Paul O’Connell’s Ireland retirement this week

GUYS. It’s too soon. But people could see the irony.

Irish players: we love each and every one of you. Keep up the good work.
