Ireland. But what is the Triple Crown? Is it the team out of England, Wales and Ireland who comes top of the Six Nations championship?

I was about to ask exactly the same question. I though maybe it was like the Calcutta Cup which is whoever wins the England/Scotland match

The Triple Crown can only be won by an undefeated country within the 'home countries' i.e. England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Ireland won all their games against the other three and consequently got the Triple Crown.

If not country had beaten all of the others the 'Crown' could not be awarded.

(Incidentally, Trinity College Dublin has the honour of having the oldest Rugby team - over 150 old)
