It was a disappointing start to Wales' six nations campaign as they lost their opening game by 22 points to 30.
Despite a valiant second half fightback, Ireland proved too strong for the defending champions, who are now without a win since June.
"There's a lot of talented players in this squad, and of course there'll be some frustrations and disappointments" says caretaker coach Rob Howley.
"We just need to look at that first twenty/twenty-five minutes and take what's good out of that second half".
