SOME of the top names in business and the public sector were cheering on as Ireland whooped England at the Aviva Stadium last weekend.

Apart from debt-laden developer Sean Dunne, our exclusive photographs show key players from the biggest multinational, private and listed companies as well as bosses of semi-state firms enjoying the match from the boxes. The guest lists provide a fascinating insight into the links being forged in corporate Ireland.

All 36 of the premium boxes at the new stadium were jammers as Brian O'Driscoll and his team did a number on Grand Slam-chasing England.

Tickets for the corporate boxes cost as much as €799 per head, providing much-needed revenue for the IRFU. The 10,000 premium-level seats were filled to capacity, with the match estimated to have generated nearly €25m for the economy.
