IT’S BEEN QUITE a day for Munster and Ireland back rower Peter O’Mahony, becoming the 11th man from this island to be named as captain of the British and Irish Lions.

It’s been a remarkable rise for the Cork man over the last few months, recovering from injury, winning his place back in the Ireland team, and now leading a combined Lions unit against the best team in the world.

Congratulations have unsurprisingly come in thick and fast for O’Mahony, from home and abroad, and from many different codes.
