TheScore.ie caught up with McGrath post-match at Lansdowne Road and asked for his take on events. He said, “I just had to sing up in the O2 box there, Drico and Paulie hung me out to dry. To be fair, I had practiced a small bit because I’m not a great singer.

“Piano man! It’s simple enough and people can get stuck into it.”
