Tullamore's Jordan Conroy in action for Ireland

Offaly's Jordan Conroy swapped his dancing shoes for his boots and was in flying form for Ireland as the team made the semi-finals of the Singapore Sevens.

Ireland pulled off a historic win over Olympic Champions Fiji on their way to the last four where only a last minute try for New Zealand denied them a place in the final.

Ireland came out second from their group on Saturday ahead of France and Japan and then defeated the USA 14-12 in their quarter-final this morning by 14-12.  They led New Zealand with seconds to go in the semi-final but a last gasp try from Akuila Rokolisoa broke Ireland's hearts after Conroy had given Ireland the lead.
