In Pics: Paul O’Connell – The Man, The Myth, The Legend

By now maybe the news has sunk in. Paul O’Connell will play no further part in the Rugby World Cup. He has played his final game for Ireland.

108 caps, 28 as captain, 3 six nations titles, 4 triple crowns. The greatest leader Ireland has ever seen. There are many words to describe Paul O’Connell but one that comes up time and time again is inspirational.

An inspirational leader, player, teammate and human being. One of the all-time greatest players the world has ever seen. While the world tries to come to terms with the loss, lets take a look at some of the best pictures of Paulie over the years.
