Celebrating a 21st birthday is always a huge milestone in a person's life but it's safe to say that this one is extra special for Irish sports fan, Jennifer Malone who is now the proud owner of a giant mural of her favourite rugby stars.

A massive fan of Irish rugby, Jennifer received the ultimate gift this year in the form of a giant mural of "her boys". The artwork was in need of a new home having been taken down from its original location where it was on display at the Lansdowne Road Station. Agreeing that it couldn't have gone to a better place, the mural has taken up new residence with Jennifer outside her house.

Sharing a photo of a beaming Jennifer to social media, Jennifer's mam Donna wrote:

"There may be no rugby at the moment, but Jennifer will have her boys here every day."

Not the only memorable birthday gift Jennifer received this year either as she was greeted by both Rob Kearney and Rob Henshaw at her birthday lunch... also receiving a birthday message from two of her favourite singers. Saying that he hopes to meet her "very, very soon", Nialler's video was topped only by a birthday serenade from one Mr Olly Murs.


Saying that she absolutely loved both videos (who wouldn't?!), Donna confirmed that this is one birthday Jennifer won't forget in a hurry.
