However, Brian O’Driscoll has been confident of the Irish rugby team getting their hands on the 6 Nations trophy for some time.

The 38-year-old actress and writer had stated on Twitter:

The suggestion prompted Hairy Baby to ask she’d be happy to help out Focus Ireland. The result? This classic tee:

Hairy Baby confirmed afterwards: “We’ve teamed up with Amy Huberman this month for a not-for-profit limited-edition chari-tee with all profits donated to Focus Ireland to help with the great and much needed work they do.”

On Saturday, Ireland became 6 Nations Grand Slam champions for only the third time after beating England 24-15 at Twickenham.
