Ronan O’Gara honoured at gala event

Published 07/03/2014 | 16:22

Ronan O’Gara was today honoured for his contribution to rugby at a gala event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin.

The charity organisation Haven held a special dinner to honour O’Gara’s glittering playing career with broadcaster George Hook the MC for the occasion.

The Racing Metro coach was joined by former teammates including Tomas O’Leary and Casey Laulala and various other guests, and the former Munster player was quick to point out that individual awards are only possible because of those around him.

“I’m fully aware I’m accepting awards on behalf of other people’s work,” he said today.

“I was the number 10, that’s why I get the awards.”

O’Gara was delighted to be among family and friends again, a rare treat after his move to Paris.

“I don’t get to get to come back to Ireland too often since I relocated to Paris,” he admitted.

“It’s great to come home on a Friday, with no pressure of a game for Saturday and just relax.”

O’Gara will be at the Aviva stadium tomorrow to watch the Six Nations clash with Italy which he belives will be a comfortable victory for the home side.

The game is being overshadowed by Brian O’Driscoll’s final home appearance for Ireland and O’Gara believes all the praise is deserved for the Leinter centre.

“He has been Ireland’s best player and can be so proud of what he has achieved,” the former Munster out-half said.
