Over 5,000 supporters cheered on the Ireland squad at an open training session in Thomond Park today. The team spent the week in Limerick as they continued their Rugby World Cup pre-season training.

The early morning rain cleared and fans got a chance to see the players put through a gruelling session by Joe Schmidt and the coaching staff.

Speaking about day Munster and Ireland out-half Joey Carbery said

It’s great to be back in Thomond Park and to have spent the week in Limerick. The fans have been great today – they helped to get us through the hardest parts of the session on the pitch.
