The weird and wonderful world of the Irish rugby team on Instagram

A picture with your dog... a dolfie?

Patrick McCarry

Instagram, that’s how the reigning Six Nations champs roll.

The Irish rugby team can do no wrong [until they head back to their provinces] after they retained their Six Nations title in Edinburgh. As they partied hard on Saturday and Sunday, as the photos of the post-match celebrations emerged it became clear that Instagram is the social media weapon of choice for most of the players. But cluttered among the dressing room pics and the game day photos their profiles also reveal some of the most downright bizarre and flesh-baring images we have seen in some time.

Conor Murray

Just a regular day at the art gallery for Conor.

Dominic Ryan

Second post in and already it is getting weird. We’re guessing Luke Fitzgerald’s rear?

Rob Kearney

Rob’s a big fan of a bit of fancy dress. Big fan.

Paddy Jackson

As is young Jacko. Getting his fancy dress game strong from an early age.

Jamie Heaslip

Nothing to see here. Just the greatest Instagram post by any Irish rugby player, ever.

Not to mention this eye-opener.

Tommy Bowe

Like Murdoch from The A Team. The old TV show, that is. Not the crap movie.

Cian Healy

Unsurprisingly, his Instagram game is strong. Proper comfy for Church.

Like a re-make of The Warriors.

Devin Toner

Finally Dev finds a chair that fits him

Ian Madigan

We feel you Mads.

Just Noel Reid and Fergus McFadden hanging out with Transformers, is all.

Sean O’Brien

Meanwhile, down on the farm.

Robbie Henshaw

He’s really coming out of his shell.

Jordi Murphy

Victoria’s Secret, make this ad cam-pain[sic] happen.
