Videos: The very best of the RTÉ rugby promos in 2014
It's been quite the year for Irish rugby.
Irish rugby has rarely ever been in a better state. Six Nations champions and winning all of our November international matches including two against the behemoths of Southern Hemisphere rugby, South Africa and Australia.
The RTÉ sports department have a penchant for releasing superb rugby promo videos and we take a look as some of their best work from 2014:
The Brian O'Driscoll promo ahead of his final Six Nations tournament:
This is a beauty and features some of the great man's best moments for Ireland in the Six Nations.
Brian O'Driscoll montage after his final home game for Ireland:
Probably our greatest ever player, 2014 will also always be remembered for it being the final time we got to see the legendary Brian O'Driscoll in the green jersey on Irish soil.
Six Nations Tournament promo:
This video did the rounds ahead of the Six Nations tournament. Shot from the perspective of an Irish rugby fan's ritual on match-day. It also features some familiar faces.
The Brian O'Driscoll promo ahead of his final home game against Italy:
This was a great promo showing what it would be like in the future and how some might reminisce about the legend of BOD.
The November Series promo:
The RTE lads know how to make the goosebumps stand to attention and this promo ahead of the November series was, as usual, on the money.
The Ireland v Australia preview promo:
Tom McGurk at his finest here doing his best David Attenborough impression ahead of the final match of the November series against Australia.
