Caelan Doris of Ireland in action against Nepo Laulala of New Zealand during the Autumn Nations Series match
Caelan Doris was named as the man of the match this afternoon as Ireland defeated New Zealand for only the third time ever.
A trio of late penalties from Joey Carbery ultimately proved crucial following tries from native James Lowe, Rónan Kelleher and Doris in a 29-20 victory at the Aviva Stadium, following on from the Irish victories in Chicago in 2016 and in Dublin two years later.
Doris is a native of Lacken, Co Mayo, and lines out for Leinster. His grandfather Cornelius is from Lettermacaward and has cousins, the MacMahons, are from Fintown.
