So Ireland have done it! It was such an emotionally draining two hours. The result was in doubt right up to the last kick of the match, and Paddy Wallace, who gave away the last penalty which Stephen Jones only marginally failed to convert, must be the happiest man in the world tonight. 61 years on, Ireland have done the Grand Slam, and are Triple Crown and 6 Nations Champions.
A major part of the success was due to Tommy Bowe who scored a majestic try against Wales. But for me the key moment of the whole tournament was his try-saving tackle against Scotland. It must put him in serious contention for a place in the Lions team for this summer
