Irish rugby stars soak up the sun in Barbados


Irish rugby stars soaked up the sun in Barbados last week.

Ireland teammates Conor Murray, Dave Kearney and Robbie Henshaw jetted off for a 10-day holiday at the luxury five star Sandy Lane Resort, which was gifted to them by owner J.P. McManus following Ireland’s World Cup campaign.

The lads were also joined by Leinster star Noel Reid, who posted a snap of the boys ready for a night on the town, “Last night at the Couples Retreat,” he joked.

Dave’s brother Rob Kearney, who has been spotted hanging out in NYC, hilariously commented, “Is @dave.kearney up his ol baby oil tricks again for those double dates!?,” referring to Dave’s (outrageously) shiny arm.

Leinster star Jordi Murphy has also been spotted looking loved up with his long term love Laura Finnegan.

Meanwhile Robbie Henshaw and his beau Sophie Marren also took in the beautiful sights of Barbados before jetting off to Los Angeles.

“Last night in paradise,” Robbie wrote on Instagram alongside a sweet snap of the pair.

Sandy Lane has become a popular spot for Ireland’s rugby stars, as Ian Madigan, Rob Kearney and Luke Fitzgerald previously visited the paradise island with their girlfriends.

The resort is also much-loved by many a-list stars, including Simon Cowell, Tiger Woods, as well as Rory McIlroy and Erica Stoll.

We’re not jealous at all…
