Cahir's Tommy O'Donnell was born 21 May 1987. We don't know when he was first destined to play rugby. Maybe it was his days in Clanwilliam RFC or in fact the ones in Colaiste Dun Iascaigh where Mr McCarthy kept a watchful eye on his talents as they tested Mr Lahart's scrum Machine many an evening. A few facts about Tommy's career: Munster Senior Debut: v Scarlets, September 2007, Musgrave ParkMunster Heineken Cup Debut: v Scarlets, December 2011, Thomond ParkClub: UL BohemiansPrevious Club: ClanwilliamInternational Honours: Ireland Youths; Ireland U19/U20; Emerging Ireland; Ireland
Tommy will start for Ireland v Wales in the RBS 6 Nations Championship in the Aviva Stadium on Sunday 7th February. Well done from all your friends and family in Cahir.
