Peter O’Mahony did something very special with his Six Nations medal

Pure class from the Grand Slam hero.

There’s no grand homecoming for Ireland’s rugby heroes thanks to the bad weather, but at least one fan enjoyed an incredibly personal moment to treasure after the decisive win at Twickenham on Saturday.

Shortly after the final whistle, Peter O’Mahony sought out long-time Ireland fan Jennifer Malone and presented her with his winning medal. Inpho Photography was there to capture the magic:

As was Jennifer’s proud and understandably slightly envious sister Rachel who made sure to share the moment online.

“My sister got to lift the Six Nations trophy today in Twickenham,” read her tweet which has been liked nearly 14,000 times.

A fantastic and selfless gesture from the Cork native after an exceptional campaign from Joe Schmidt’s men saw them secure the Grand Slam.

Ireland’s victory at Twickenham, sees them climb to a best-ever rankings tally of 89.11 points, gaining further ground on New Zealand.
