Donncha O'Callaghan has received a torrent of support this week after announcing that he would be leaving Munster for the Worcester Warriors but one former team mate couldn't resist the chance to give him a ribbing.

The 36-year-old will move to Sixways after spending 17 seasons with Munster following a stellar career with the province which included two Heineken Cup triumphs.

The 94 times-capped forward played in the last three World Cups, while in 2009 he helped Ireland win the Six Nations title in Grand Slam fashion. His last Ireland appearance came more than two years ago.

O'Callaghan was appearing to Today with Sean O'Rourke on RTE Radio One to talk rugby and to urge Ireland to take in more refugees fleeing the Syrian crisis.

He was joined by former team mate Mick Galwey who quickly changed the subject to his new allegiances.

"You've been very easy on him there, you never slagged him off for taking the Queen's shilling. That's the bottom line here," Galwey said.

O'Callaghan responded: "I thought it was going to be over the Cork-Kerry match."

Meanwhile, Munster man Mick Galwey revealed that he is in Dublin to take part in a golf classic in Foxrock GC in aid of the Berkeley Fund.

"It's a very emotional event for everybody but there is huge work that has to be done," he said.

Ireland's defence coach Les Kiss has a jersey signed by the Irish team that will be raffled off at the event.

People can contribute to the fund on a nationwide basis by making a donation for whatever amount to a bank account at AIB Stillorgan.
