England went into the game knowing that only a bonus-point victory would prevent the Irish, with four wins from four after an earlier 28-8 triumph over Scotland, winning the championship.
Jacob Stockdale bagged a brace to become the first Irishman to score six tries in a single campaign in Five and Six Nations history, as Ireland moved within one win of just a third-ever clean sweep.

In 2017, Ireland denied England a Grand Slam when they met in the final round with the latter already assured of the Six Nations title.

Scotland are here to play.
Murray, though, was to get his moment of glory as he ducked inside Finn Russell and went over six minutes into the second half - Sexton converting as the Irish eased away to 21-3.
"The young guys probably think they are going to get a lot of opportunities but it doesn't work like that", he said.
But when replacement hooker Cronin barged home from a driven lineout, Ireland had that all-important bonus-point, and the title tantalisingly within their grasp.
Shortly before half-time, he capitalised on good handling from Bundee Aki and Garry Ringrose for his second of the day - but it was his first that had everyone talking. "We came close against Ireland, (and) this time things turned out well for us". It was a team performance right from the start.
