VIP treatment for tag winners

Two IRFU Tag players enjoyed an exclusive VIP day at the Ireland v France match by winning the first competition draw of the year. More prizes can be won with a memorable day out to see Ireland play England at the Aviva Stadium up for grabs.

Cecily Donnelly and her husband Donal from the 'Cookie Monsters' team playing IRFU Tag were the first winners of 2011 after their captain Paul Quinn listed all his players while registering the team to play.

On Sunday, before the Ireland v France game, Cecily and Donal went pitch-side at the Aviva Stadium for a photo while the match-day squads warmed up nearby.

Following an extremely high tempo game in an electric atmosphere, which saw Ireland being pipped by three points, the winners went to the official post-match reception where they met Brian O'Driscoll (pictured right with Donal and Cecily), Jamie Heaslip and many more.

Anyone wishing to enter their teammates for the draw should do so before the deadline for the next one, on March 11.

All player names entered on the online form will qualify to be drawn for an exclusive VIP day out at the Ireland v England game on March 19.

For details on how to enter or register your team, see a list of venues or see more photos of who Cecily and Donal met at the Aviva Stadium, go to the IRFU's tag website, www.irfutag.ie.
