The colourful and dramatic life story of the record points scorer in Irish rugby history.
Ronan O'Gara was born in 1977 in San Diego, California, and brought up in Cork. He was a star player at Presentation Brothers College, University College Cork and Cork Constitution, and soon became a key member of the Irish national rugby squad. Since making his international debut in 2000, O'Gara has gone on to win more than 80 caps and score more than 800 points for both Ireland in internationals and for Munster in the Heineken Cup - both record tallies. He was the leading points scorer in the Six Nations championship in 2005, 2006 and 2007, capturing the Triple Crown with Ireland in three of the last four years, and won the European Cup with Munster in 2006.
