The Grand Slam may no longer be available but Ireland head coach Declan Kidney believes the RBS 6 Nations crown is still a realistic aim after seeing his side lose 21-23 against Wales at the Aviva Stadium.
Kidney said: "Three teams have had their Grand Slams ended this weekend, and three teams are still in. That is the nature of it, but there is a championship still to be won.
"We will take a good look at what we can solve ourselves. We gave Wales some easy field position, and they made inroads.
"We had to defend for 60 per cent-plus of the game, and if you do that then you are going to ask for trouble. There are different aspects of the game I know we can improve on.
"They managed to put the ball wide on us, and we need to scan a bit better than we have been doing. It is just a case now of getting ready for the next match in six days' time."
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
