Ireland were soundly beaten by a Wales team that won their third Grand Slam under Warren Gatland as Joe Schmidt's side slumped to their second defeat of the tournament.
"They scored after a couple of minutes and you're always under a little pressure and we didn't respond overly well to that pressure, giving up penalties".
"Emotion plays a huge part in big games like that".

He said: "I'd like to take my hat off to Wales and Gats". We'll be the first to put our hands up and say that's not as good as we want to be but we'll reflect, rebuild and go forward.
