Taoiseach congratulates Irish Rugby Team on 6 Nations Triumph

5th March 2014 - Susan Moss

The Taoiseach has today congratulated the Irish Rugby Team and their talisman Brian O’Driscoll on their outstanding courage and skill in winning this year’s 6 Nations Championship.

“I would like to extend huge congratulations to the Irish Rugby team on their courage and skill in winning this year’s 6 Nations Championship. 

It was a hard won victory in Paris today and a testament to the teams’s bravery and resilience.
On behalf of the Irish people I would like to extend a special tribute to Brian O’Driscoll on this his last game in an Irish jersey. Brian has finished his career on his own terms which is appropriate because that is how he played the game. He was a warrior and a genius and gave Irish rugby fans great joy through years of commitment and pride in playing for his country.”
