History Made As Ireland Win Series 2-1 In Wellington

An incredible night in Wellington as Ireland made yet more history in New Zealand by recording their first ever series win over the All Blacks.

Speaking about the series success which was confirmed by a hard-fought 32-22 victory, Peter O’Mahony said: “To win here, to get a series win, you know it probably wasn’t something you’d have thought about as a young fella.

“Now, there’ll be young fellas at home who will be dreaming of playing for Ireland and winning over here. It’ll have been done before, it won’t the task that it was.

“It’ll never be taken away from this group, that we’re the first ones to do it, not only win once, but win a series here.

“We always believe, we always believe we can win. We know the work we put in, we’re an honest group of people, and an incredible group of people at that.”

He added: “We’re very lucky to have incredible backing from our families at home who weren’t here, our friends, coaches.

“These days are made by groups of people and the people you have in the background, not just those that are here, the ones at home as well, and it means a huge amount. For the kids at home, you know, it’s a new path made for them.”
