Ireland's Call - Part Two: Put your questions to the Irish team in New Zealand

Get in touch with us to put your most searching queries to captain Brian O’Driscoll and coach Declan Kidney.

BRIAN O’DRISCOLL AND Declan Kidney may have handled your questions with poise and grace last week but they had no answer to the All Blacks as they lost 42-10.

This week, we suspect reader’s queries may have a harder edge to them.’s Patrick McCarry is on the ground in New Zealand and we are giving you the chance to put a question to the Irish team.

Ireland manager Declan Kidney and captain Brian O’Driscoll will attend a Thursday afternoon press conference in Christchurch that will announce the starting 15 to face the world champions.

If you have a question, comment or suggestion you would like to make to either man, just get in touch.

You can tweet a message to @patmccarry or post your question below.

Not every question can be chosen but the best queries and comments will be put to the Irish rugby heroes.

Last Thursday, BOD and Deccie fielded questions from three of our fine readers – Owen, Simon Lynch and Robbie Shaw.

Answers will be relayed back in a follow-up article on Friday, 15 June – the day before the second Test.

So, crack out the VHS recordings of the first Test on Saturday – or read our ‘As it happened’ – and give the lads your best shot/question.
