Paul O'CONNELL - Ireland (Rugby) - 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Paul O'Connell is pictured above during his ill fated last game for Ireland - their 24-9 victory over France in the

2015 World Cup Finals. The match took place in Cardiff at the Millennium Stadium and Paul suffered a torn hamstring

pull in the first half that required surgery thus ending his International career.

He had intended to retire at the end of the Tournament. He scored eight tries for Ireland.

Below are more images of the match in Cardiff.
