Seán O’Brien


A native of Tullow in Co. Carlow, O’Brien made his senior Leinster debut against Cardiff Blues in September 2008. First called up to the Irish squad for the 2009 November series, Seán’s line-breaking and ball-carrying abilities have been a feature of his 51 caps to date, while his domestic influence has coincided with the establishment of Leinster as the dominant force in European club rugby.

Having played a prominent role in the successful 2013 British & Irish Lions tour to Australia, O’Brien was once again selected by Warren Gatland to tour New Zealand in 2017.
