Follow Friday: It’s Sonic Sean O’Brien

Every Friday we’ll point you in the right direction for the most entertaining sportsmen and women on the Twitter.

A LOT OF people have got the wrong impression of Ireland flanker, Sean O’Brien.

He’s much more than just a country lad made good, he was always good.

Never worth a follow more than the weeks around the Six Nations let Sean guide you through inner sanctum of the Irish camp.

And when he’s not hard at work or having a row with Stephen Ferris he can be found leisurely walking the land in his native Carlow.

Yes, whether he’s feeding cows, shooting or just lifting round bails; the Tullow Tank is unstoppable at the minute.
