That year Ireland won a Six Nations grand slam, defeating all its northern hemisphere rivals. On the summer tour Ireland won a series away to Australia, 2-1. In November, as well as beating Italy, Argentina and the US, it toppled the world No. 1 All Blacks 16-9 in Dublin.

Children travelled from Wadebridge Camels and Okehampton RFC to take part on a cool but beautifully sunny day.
