Evocative artwork and raising a toast in Peru - two stunning BOD tributes

The outpouring of love for Ireland’s outgoing rugby hero has been impressive in its creativity.

EVERYONE FROM TANAISTE Eamon Gilmore to Paul O’Connell and Sean O’Brien has chipped in with a tribute to retiring Irish rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll.

The country’s leading try-scorer will hang up his Test match-playing boots tomorrow after a championship decider against France in Paris. Here are two of the best BOD tributes to come our way today.

Waterford native Colm O’Neill owns an Irish pub in Cusco, Peru that goes by the name Wild Rover. Paul Lyne emailed TheScore.ie today to let us know ‘we’ll all be watching O’Driscoll’s last hurrah tomorrow with a few cans of Guinness and a full Irish brekkie’.

Barry Jazz Finnegan has also been hard at work for the last few days, piecing together some marvellous artwork in honour of O’Driscoll.
