GRAPHIC details of an alleged threesome between a young woman and two Irish rugby players were circulated online by a group of rugby friends.

The 24-year-old woman from the greater Dublin area had a fling with the international teammates after meeting them during a night on the town.

Details of the incident emerged after the woman posted a private message on her Facebook page, which inadvertently went public.

But it has also emerged that details of the night were circulated by a group of rugby-playing friends who have known each other for years.

Some of these players are friends with the two international stars since they were young players. While not full internationals, at least one of the group now plays for a well-known club team.

It has now emerged that extracts of an online conversation between this group of male friends are being passed around.

In the group chat, a third male provided intimate details about the reported threesome.

He said that one of the two players at the centre of the incident was in a hotel room with the woman in question, a business university graduate, before the second player joined them in the act.

NIGHTCLUB

The two men, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had spent the evening drinking in a pub in the Grafton Street area with friends, before going on to a well-known nightclub.

A source told the Irish Independent that there was "plenty of alcohol" consumed. It is believed that they went from the nightclub to a nearby late-night fast-food restaurant, where they bumped into the woman.

The trio stayed in a city-centre hotel until the early hours of the following day.

Meanwhile, the woman has returned to Ireland. She left the country for several days to reside with a sibling in the UK after news of the story initially emerged.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, told the Irish Independent that she felt there had been a "massive breach" in her privacy with regards to how details of the incident initially spread – a conversation on Facebook that went viral.

"The message I sent was to a close friend and I never in a million years ever thought anyone else would see, let alone for it to be sent around for so many others to see. It's such a breach of my privacy," she said.

The woman has since deactivated her social networking page.
