Watch out Argentina, Paul O'Connell is here

The Ireland captain and his teammates have touched down after their long-haul flight from Dublin.

THE SIX NATIONS champions are in Argentina. Ireland touched down for their South American summer tour shortly after 1pm [Irish time] and many looked worse for wear after the long-haul flight.

Among the travelling party were captain Paul O’Connell, Jamie Heaslip, who led Leinster to RaboDirect Pro12 success on Saturday, and two Blues players who missed out on the final — Jordi Murphy and Noel Reid. Here are some snaps of the journey and arrival.
