Irish Dublin up as Welsh take big hit.

Ireland ..26

Wales ..3

Peter O'Mahony insists Ireland have restored national pride after condemning Wales to a first away Six Nations defeat since 2011.

The Irish saw off the champs of the last two years to make it two victories in a row in front of a jubilant home crowd at the Aviva Stadium.

And man of the match O'Mahony said: "We haven't done the jersey justice over the past couple of years.

"It's time we started to turn this place into a bit of a fortress."

The rampant Irish raced 13–0 up in the first half, with flanker Chris Henry scoring the game's first try.

Jonny Sexton kicked four penalties and Paddy Jackson surged across the line in the 79th minute then converted his try to deal a huge blow to Welsh dreams of a hat–trick of Six Nations titles.
