One Irish flag spotted at IREvITA has attracted significant attention

IRELAND were victorious in their challenge against Italy yesterday.

The boys in green won the match by 56 to Italy's 19.

Many players in the match sustained serious injuries which left many fans worried for the rest of the Six Nations, however, some supporters at the match were dedicated to sending their own message to the Irish team.

One flag spotted at the match was the Irish tricolour, bearing the message 'I Believe Her'.

The current rape trial of Irish players Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding has left many people questioning the Irish team's stance on their former co-players, especially with the appearance of current Ireland captain Rory Best at the trial several weeks ago.

The victim of the trial has given evidence to the courts for more than 5 days, with the underwear and clothes of the victim shown to the jury to determine whether the two former Ireland players are guilty of the rape.

The flag displayed at the match showed support to the victim, saying their support lay behind her version of the events currently up for discussion.

Many people have agreed with the message shown at the match, saying they believed her.

A GoFundMe has also been set up to send flowers to the 21-year-old woman at the centre of the trial.
