Thanks for the memories, Ronan

Published 22/05/2013

RONAN O'Gara retires with 128 caps for Ireland, 1,083 international test points and three Lions tours.

He also won two Heineken Cups with Munster and the Grand Slam with Ireland in 2009 – the second time Ireland won a Grand Slam in 50 years, and he kicked the final, crucial goal in the closing minutes against Wales.

He was one of the best goal and penalty points-kickers in an Ireland team and the best director of a team I have seen.

Thanks, Ronan, for the memories.
