BOD mania has gripped the capital and the dad-of-one's illustrious career is being toasted with signature jerseys, No13 cookies and tribute songs.

With rugby legend Brian O'Driscoll taking to the field at the Aviva Stadium in a green jersey for the last time tomorrow, businesses around the city have been jumping on the bandwagon to pay tribute to the 35-year-old sporting hero.

Acknowledging BOD's contribution as a pivotal member of the Irish squad, The Natural Bakery in Donnybrook, based opposite rugby haunt Kiely's, has made green rugby ball-shaped cookies, coated with '13' in icing.

FREEBIES

They've been selling like hot cakes all week and the bakery will be handing out freebies with every cup of coffee bought on match day.

Lifestyle Sports has also designed limited edition jerseys emblazoned with the centre's position number.

Written underneath is '1999-2014', the period he has been at the forefront of the game, and the shirts – priced at €15 – have been flying out the door.

They are also encouraging fans who already have a green jersey to bring it into one of the stores, as the dates can be applied.
