A huge mural dedicated to Munster and Ireland legend Paul O'Connell has been unveiled in Limerick.

His image has been painted on Mulgrave street, Limerick and it carries a message for his new club Toulon.

The Limerick man will ply his trade in the Top 14 next year after signing for the French giants.

The IRFU allowed the Ireland captain to cut short his Munster contract at the end of last season which cleared the way for his move to the three-time European Cup winners.

His dedicated service to Munster throughout his career has made him a cult hero and Limerick City and County Council unveiled a fitting tribute for the giant lock earlier this month.
