Reception for our Six Nations stars planned

Plans are under way to hold a celebratory bash in honour of the Irish rugby team's Six Nations triumph, writes Emma Jane Hade.

Junior Minister Michael Ring confirmed that the Government would be offering a reception to Joe Schmidt's victorious side "once the dust settles down".

"I have no doubt that we will be offering them a reception," he said.

The news came after fans were left disappointed when no official homecoming event was announced.

Mr Ring said that the difficulty in organising something now was because most players had returned to their provincial sides.
