On the occasion of the announcement by Paul O Connell of his decision to retire from playing Rugby, I would like to take this opportunity as President of Young Munster RFC, to offer Paul and his family the very best wishes for their future and to thank him on behalf of everyone associated with Young Munster RFC, for his tremendous playing career remembering especially, that it all started in our club.
Paul has never forgotten his associations with Young Munster RFC and his many exploits on the rugby field over the years has brought much joy and pride to everyone at the club.
To say that he is a hero in our club, is an understatement as he is indeed a living legend and we were delighted when he accepted our invitation to become an Honorary Life President of Young Munster RFC, earlier this season.
It is to be sincerely hoped he will continue to have a big input into the game in Limerick and Munster.
Yours in rugby,
Young Munster RFC
