Irish Hero Peter O'Mahony Gives Six Nations Medal To Superfan Jennifer Malone

Peter O'Mahony was part of history on Saturday when he helped Ireland win just the country's third ever Six Nations Grand Slam by beating England. However the flanker was the day's real winner giving his medal to one incredibly happy fan.

Under Joe Schmidt Ireland have been ever improving. Last season they beat New Zealand in the autumn internationals before stopping England from winning the Grand Slam in the Six Nations.

However this year they have been even better and were well worth their title win, picking up the trophy with one round to go. They travelled to Twickenham yesterday with history to be made.

They were much the better side as they ran out 24-15 winners, leaving Eddie Jones' side finishing fifth place in the table whilst making their own history.

However if the scenes on the field were incredible then Peter O'Mahony took it to another level when he handed his winners medal over to delighted young fan Jennifer Malone, with Jennifer's sister Rachel posting the amazing photos to Twitter. You'd struggle to not smile at her delight:

And it's not the first time that one of Jennifer's interactions with a player has gone viral, although last time it was because of her own classy as anything gesture.

In 2016 her team Kilkenny faced Waterford in the All Ireland hurling semi-final when Waterford kicker Pauric Mahony missed a late kick leading to a Kilkenny victory.

Mahony sunk to his knees at the final whistle and Jennifer consoled him after the match despite her side winning:
