Ashleigh Baxter, Alison Miller and Lynne Cantwell answered questions from rugby fans at home and abroad, newcomers to the sport.
And even some from their Grand Slam team-mates, Fiona Coghlan, Niamh Briggs and Niamh Kavanagh, and the squad's strength and conditioning coach Ross Callaghan got in on the act, using the hashtag #AskGIG.
There was a prize on offer of a signed Ireland jersey for the best question, but such was the response that they added a second signed shirt with Shane Culleton and Christine Hanley chosen as the worthy winners.
You can relive the Twitter Q&A session with our recap below:
Q: @NorthantsRugby: What's the best way to promote Women's rugby on a local level? To give women the confidence to play?
A: Lynne: Exploiting the success of our Grand Slam win this year was a great way to promote the game! It gave girls role models.
Q: @LarryBarryIre: Was playing for Ireland always a big dream from a young age or was it something that just happened?
A: Ashleigh: I watched Ireland when I was 17 and I had my kitbag in the car!!!
Q: @RichmondFC1861: What was Lynne's favourite trophy win this year: Six Nations, Richmond's Players' Player or the legendary Tapewoman award?
A: Lynne: As nice as it was to win the Tapewoman award, winning the Grand Slam was a lifetime achievement!
Q: @busher18: What is the biggest difference between 7s and 15s and which do you prefer?
A: Ashleigh: 7s is a quicker game and 15s is more tactical.
Q: @LarryBarryIre: In my opinion the Women's matches should be played at least in the RDS! Are you happy with where they are played?
A: Lynne: Ashbourne has become a fortress for us, but at the same time we still aspire to play in bigger grounds.
Q: @elise_squirrel: If you were an animal what would you be?
A: Alison: I'd like to be a gazelle!!! Being graceful is very important to me!

A: Lynne: What the hell?! I'm only a spring chicken!
Q: @katemc79: Who has the biggest toiletry bag?

A: Ashleigh: I enjoy playing every sport. People's perceptions of Women's rugby.
Q: @rugbywilson: How are you dealing with the heat in Moscow? Do you use pre-cooling methods or do you just take it as it comes?

A: Ashleigh and Alison are students and Lynne uses annual leave.
Q: Lyndal1985: Are you going to do a tour of the small clubs with the Six Nations trophy? The @BallyshannonRFC ladies would love to see it!

Q: @RodgerMcBurney: Do you prefer a slider, 99 or a screwball?
A: Ashleigh: Screwball!

A: Alison: There's raw talent in Ireland to be successful in whatever we put our minds to.
Q: @AishlingDG: Odd question but am curious. Do you guys get a lot of harrassment for playing a 'guys'' game? My husband is quite critical.
