From the programme of the 1999 AIL League final at Landsdowne Road between Cork Con and Garryowen a profile of a youngish Ronan O’Gara.
Not what I usually post but am currently doing a trawl in the attic and I’ve quite a few old match programmes from Soccer, GAA, and Rugby and thought this profile may be of interest.
