This photograph is officially cursed

Ah lads.

REMEMBER THAT BRILLIANT photograph of the Irish squad with a handful of the nation’s sporting legends?

Yeah, that’s cursed.

Peter O’Mahony and Paul O’Connell have both since been ruled out of the Rugby World Cup with serious injuries, while Johnny Sexton is also sitting out today’s quarter-final against Argentina with an adductor strain.

Sean O’Brien is serving a one-match suspension and then, when you thought the joke couldn’t get any more cruel, Tommy Bowe was stretchered off injured in the first half at Cardiff.

The next time somebody asks you for a photo, lads, it’s ok to say no.

Full credit to Lauren Guilfoyle for spotting it.

Ian Madigan has absolutely nailed the championship haircut. He means business
