Ireland started the game strongly but, thanks to an energised Welsh defence, it took almost all the first quarter before they were able to make their mark.
The home side’s breakthrough came through their favoured play of a lineout near the Welsh line where they worked some space for Larmour who stepped the last defender to cross . . .
