Ireland were held to a 13-13 draw in the Six Nations by France in Dublin.
The hosts made a positive start with a try from captain Jamie Heaslip as the forward drove over the line.
Ireland were intent on building a lead and established a 13-3 advantage at half-time with a number of successful penalties from Paddy Jackson.
Frederic Michalak’s kick was the only thing France had to show for the first 40 minutes as the recalled fly-half missed a couple of attempts.
But the second period belonged to the visitors as Morgan Parra kicked a penalty. In the last 10 minutes the French sensed they could earn an unlikely draw and went over the line with a Louis Picamoles try.
Parra added the conversion to level the scores for Les Bleus at the Aviva Stadium but they remain without a win after four matches in the Six Nations.
