In the clip, several players can be seen arriving with hoods up while Player of the Championship nominee Hugo Keenan is sporting a retro Chelsea football shirt and veteran flanker Peter O’Mahony is the last to arrive holding two bottles of beer.
The story is said to be that Ringrose, who missed the crucial 29-16 win over England at the Aviva Stadium after suffering a sickening head injury against Scotland in Round 4, didn’t fancy coming out for another day on the lash, so the Ireland boys brought the party to him.
