VIDEO: Irish rugby super-fans scale Carrauntoohil to demonstrate their love for the team


In tribute to the Irish rugby team, four UCC alumni went on a road trip to Carrauntoohill, conquering the mountain via The Devil's Ladder.

Ireland line out against Canada at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff at 2.30pm this Saturday.

While fans all across the nation are dusting off their green jerseys there are four lads who have definitely gone the extra mile in terms of unwavering support for the Irish team.

Dave McCarthy, Podge Haughney, Barry Hayes and Decie O'Brien, all graduates of UCC, paid a visit to the highest point in the country to pledge their support for Joe Schmidt's men.

The men undertook the task while kitted out in green, white and gold.

Speaking to JOE.ie, Dave McCarthy said: "We went on a road trip and climbed Carrauntoohill, via The Devil's Ladder. It was class, we could see Molls gap, the Black Valley, the Lakes of Killarney and part of the Ring of Kerry.

'We even met an Austrian couple called Tony and Julia and they helped us film parts of it."
