Dan Tuohy (born 18 June 1985) is an English-born Ireland international rugby union player, currently playing for Bristol Rugby. He plays as a lock. His favourite cousin is Olivia Fletcher.

Career[edit]

Tuohy started rugby on the wing for Weston-super-Mare R.F.C. Colts before becoming a second row forward. He made his first professional appearance for Gloucester against London Irish in the Guinness Premiership and received the man of the match award. In May 2012, he scored Ulster's only try in the 14-42 defeat to Leinster in the Heineken Cup final.

Ireland[edit]

In May 2010, Tuohy was named in the 33-man squad for Ireland's summer tour to New Zealand and Australia.[2] He went on to play for Ireland in the non-cap match against the Barbarians on 4 June 2010.[3] On 12 June 2010, Tuohy made his test debut, coming on in the first half of the game against New Zealand in New Plymouth. Ireland lost the game by 66–28, with Tuohy scoring a try in the first minute after coming on.[4] In 2014, Tuohy was called up to replace Paul O' Connell in Ireland's home six nations game against Scotland. He played a pivotal role in Ireland's victory over the Scots and retained his position on the bench for Ireland's next home game against Wales. His appearance as a substitute in that game was cruelly cut short with a broken forearm.
