Ireland are out of the Rugby World Cup.

Andy Farrell's side suffered an agonising four-point defeat to New Zealand in tonight's quarter final in Paris.

It finished 28 points to 24 in favour of the All Blacks, with the Irish tries coming from Bundee Aki and Jamison Gibson Park, as well as a penalty try.

However, it wasn't enough for Ireland to reach the semi-finals for the first time.

New Zealand will play Argentina in the semi-finals after Michael Cheika's side got the better of Wales earlier.

The Pumas won by 29 points to 17, having trailed 10-nil at one stage in the first half.
