'Not easy taking this off for the last time': Brian O'Driscoll says thank you and goodbye

No, thank you Brian.

THE PARTY IN Paris is in full swing and Brian O’Driscoll has hung up his Ireland jersey one last time.

“Phew! Worked out ok!” BOD tweeted after soaking up Ireland’s Six Nations win for a couple of hours.

“Thanks for all the messages of support. Unreal feeling.”

And then a picture of the iconic number 13 jersey he wore on his 133rd and final Irish cap, and his boots hanging around the neck, a hint of sadness amidst the euphoria.

“Not easy taking this off for the last time.”

Thanks, Brian.
