The Ireland 2023 bid team have delivered their bid to host the Rugby World Cup in six years time to World Rugby offices.
Ireland are one of three countries bidding to host the event, and face competition from South Africa and France. The winner will be announced later this year.
Up to 120 children from different schools and rugby clubs around the country took part in the presentation.
They were joined by Dick Spring, Chairman of Ireland's Bid Oversight Board and Bid Ambassador Brian O'Driscoll.
Representatives of all of Ireland's national teams, a Choir and the 2023 Bid Kid Alex Place took part in Ireland's submission for the 2023 Rugby World Cup which made its way from the Aviva Stadium to the World Rugby Headquarters on Pembroke Street.
Dick Spring said: "This bid represents the hopes and aspirations of the entire Island and is focussed very firmly on the future, as symbolised by the children who were front and centre of the bid submission today.
"It presents World Rugby with a compelling proposition that combines all the advantages of a traditional Rugby market with the many opportunities of a new one.
"Rugby is hugely popular in Ireland and growing, from this platform Irish sports fans will light up the tournament in the manner they have lit up so many international events around the world over the years, making it memorable for all."
He said the bid is grounded in certainty through:
* Unparalleled Government support
* The availability and suitability of sold out, iconic stadiums set in the heart of cities and towns,
* Ireland's unrivalled access, through our diaspora, to the North American market.

The Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, said: "This bid has the total support of the Irish Government. We can guarantee that Ireland has the capacity to deliver a wonderful Rugby World Cup in 2023 which will have the backing of people throughout the island.
"We will welcome the world to our shores and encourage interest in the game of rugby like never before."
