Eoin Reddan, Devin Toner, Ian Madigan and Leo Cullen were all in attendance but insisted it would be an early night.

"It won't be too wild," Madigan said. "There's a big match in Edinburgh next weekend so we can't stay up too late but it should be a lot of fun."

Eoin Reddan said it would be an emotional night. "With Brian and Leo leaving there will be emotional moments. They have both contributed so much to Leinster."

Cian Healy arrived with his girlfriend Holly Carpenter who wore a blood red Starla dress.

Players enjoyed a drink or two in Sam's Bar on Dawson Street before heading into the Mansion House for a champagne reception.

Guests were treated to a Parma ham and grilled peach salad for starters, free range chicken breast wrapped served with truffled gnocchi and spinach pesto as a main.
