Leinster's Ian Madigan and girlfriend Anna Kirwan led the way as a host of the team's stars attended their annual Awards in Dublin this evening.

The Leinster player (27) and girlfriend of Anna Kirwan were joined by Rob Kearney and his girlfriend Jess Redden at the bash.

Madigan was no doubt provided style advice by Anna, he previously said his other half is his "main style advisor" and ensures he doesn't take any fashion missteps.

"It's a nice compliment. The hair attracts a lot of attention outside of that," he laughed, when asked about all the attention his hair receives.

"My girlfriend Anna would be my main style advisor, she keeps me on the straight and narrow. Although there is always a bit of slagging from the lads if you came in with a leather jacket, they would be saying 'vroom vroom'."

Last month Madigan and Kirwan were spotted soaking up the sun at the plush Sandy Lane resort on the Caribbean island of Barbados.

Sandy Lane is the destination of choice for members of the Irish rugby squad - Peter Stringer popped the question to Debbie O'Leary in 2014 and Luke Fitzgerald is fresh from a holiday there with new girlfriend Sadbh McMahon.

It's also favoured by A-listers around the world including Simon Cowell, Topshop boss Sir Philip Green, Mark Wahlberg and Cara Delevingne.

The high profile couple, who have been dating for more than a year, stood out on the beach, showing off their enviable figures. Madigan, who is due to move to France this summer to join Bordeaux Bègles, also shared a snap of him with Anna, a makeup artist with Dior, enjoying a round of golf on the premises' famous course.
