Prop Cian Healy, Ian Madigan, Gordon D'Arcy, Isaac Boss and Kevin McLoughlin all dashed inside the door for the charity event which aimed to raise awareness for the ISPCC's Shield anti-bullying campaign.

The evening was MC’d by ‘Voice of Ireland’ host Kathryn Thomas who arrived with her other half Padraig McLoughlin.

"I think it's a great cause and am delighted to be involved. Jamie sent me a text and I couldn't say no," she told the Irish Independent.

Proceedings kicked off with a beer and cocktail reception before guests took their seats for a three course feast.

After dinner, an informal Q&A session took place with some of the celebrity guests before Thomas floored a charity raffle with prizes including 2VIP tickets to Electric Picnic and The Eagles.

Rugby fan Michael Patton (27) from Belfast won one of the coveted seats. "It's an incredible night; to rub shoulders with the lads has been a life long dream of mine," he said.

At the end of the night, Heaslip treated guests to some of his famous home made brownies.
