Her Hero Of The Week… 8 years ago

Her Hero Of The Week…

Ever wondered where all the good men are gone? Or where are all the gods? So have we.

It’s that time of the week again, ladies…


This week’s #HerHeroOfTheWeek goes to one of rugby's greatest ever players, Brian O' Driscoll.

BOD finally hung up his boots and retired after playing his very last game of professional rugby for Leinster during the Rabo Direct PRO12 final against Glasgow Warriors yesterday.

The rugby legend's last match didn't go exactly to plan as a knee injury forced O' Driscoll off the field after less than 10 minutes.

Brian O'Driscoll leaves the game injured 31/5/2014


BOD, who was replaced by Ian Madigan, posted this image of himself and former Leinster captain Leo Cullen, who is also retiring, on Sunday morning.

So long BOD, thank you for being a great sport, as well as a fantastic sportsman!

Do you know a HERO?


Ladies, every week we will select one complete gentleman to be Her Hero, not without your help of course…

How can you help? Send an image of someone you think is an absolute hero, and if we agree, your entry will get a very deserving and coveted place.

He doesn’t have to be fast, he doesn’t necessarily have to be brave, or have ever been involved in a fight in his life… but it may help.

The picture can be anything, a nice gesture from your boyfriend (providing you have one), a text from your Dad or friend, or even someone lovely you happen to meet on the street. Surprise us!


Send your potential Her Heroes to grace.oreilly@her.ie or use the #HerHeroOfTheWeek on Twitter.

Until next week…
