Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
The Irish side trailed 15-10 with a minute of normal time remaining but then ran the ball the length of the pitch for Ricky Walsh to score the equalising try.
Ireland trailed 5-3 at the break, their sole first half score, a penalty from Ian Hanly. And they looked to be in dire straits when the home side raced into a 15-3 lead midway through the second half.
However, the Irish rallied, and David Batt scored a try which Hanly converted to set up a tense finish and a try from Walsh to earn the Irish a hugely commendable share of the spoils.
