- Ireland beats England 13-9
- England's double Grand Slam bid denied
- England's 18-match winning Test run ends
Ireland had ended the previous world record run of the New Zealand All Blacks in Chicago last November
and repeated the feat against England, which was seeking to make history under coach Eddie Jones with a 19th consecutive win.
But his team came up against an inspired home side, which hustled and harried England from start to finish at the Aviva Stadium and scored the only try of the match.
England had clinched the Six Nations title with a crushing 61-21 victory over Scotland last weekend, but defeat with so much at stake was a demoralizing end to its campaign.
"It just wasn't our day today, we just couldn't get our game going," Jones told BBC Sport after the defeat. "I take full responsibility for the loss."
Ireland led 10-3 at halftime against a lackluster visitor, which appeared nervous and below-par in a fiercely partisan atmosphere.
An early exchange of penalties from Jonathan Sexton and Owen Farrell was followed by an Irish try as lock Iain Henderson stretched out to touch over after a forward drive near the line.
