The amount of bachelors on the Irish Rugby team is rapidly dwindling.

Dave Kearney

The 26-year-old Dundalk native is enjoying the single life, after parting ways with model/hostess Hayley Ryan (below) last year. He currently lives in Dublin with his teammate and older brother, Rob, who previously admitted in a radio interview that Dave is the tidy one chez Kearney.

Luke Fitzgerald

The 28-year-old Wicklow native is currently single, after ending things with model/dancer/hairdresser Cheryl O’Rourke (below) earlier this year. He evidently holds a flame for sultry brunettes, as he previously romanced Nadia Forde. Luke is a fluent gaeilgeoir, so interested cailíní should brush up on their cúpla focal.

Cian Healy

One year on from his high profile split with former Miss Ireland Holly Carpenter (below), Clontarf native Cian is believed to be still single. When he’s not dominating the pitch as a prop, he is busy spinning the decks under his alias, DJ Church.
