O'Driscoll puts rehab boost in the picture

Oscar-winning actress Brenda Fricker may have thought the recent Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTAs) had about as much class as an episode of 'Tallafornia' but Grand Slam winner Brian O'Driscoll thought otherwise.

"I was very fortunate to be at the IFTAs rather than freezing my toes off in Paris," he says in his latest O2 blog. "I thoroughly enjoyed my night at the IFTAs and my personal highlight was meeting Peter McDonald, whose short film 'Pentecost' has been nominated for an Oscar.

"I am plodding along with my rehabilitation and am due to see the specialist in the next week or so to ascertain whether I can take my training to the next level." DK
