Ireland fought back to beat Italy 21-7 as the Women’s Six Nations Championship resumed in Dublin.
Ireland’s third victory from four starts in a tournament that started eight months ago looked in doubt when they trailed to a Melissa Bettoni try and Michela Sillari conversion just before half-time.
But a strong response produced tries in quick succession for forwards Lindsay Peat and Claire Molloy, both converted by Hannah Tyrrell, before a late penalty try sealed victory.
The win took Ireland second in the table behind unbeaten leaders and Grand Slam favourites England.
