Early career[edit]

O'Mahony was born in Cork, where he attended Presentation Brothers College. He went on to enter the Munster Academy in 2008 and captained Ireland U20 in the 2009 Six Nations Under-20s Championship and 2009 IRB Junior World Championship.[2] O'Mahony won the 2009–10 AIB Cup with Cork Constitution and was named Man-of-the-Match in the final.[3] He was also part of the Cork Constitution team that won the 2009–10 All-Ireland League alongside current Munster teammates Simon Zebo, Duncan Williams and Stephen Archer and former teammates Ian Nagle, Tom Gleeson and Brian Hayes.[4][5]

Munster[edit]

2010–2013[edit]

O'Mahony made his Munster debut against Ulster on 2 January 2010.[6] He captained Munster A to the final of the inaugural British and Irish Cup in the 2009–10 season.[7] O'Mahony was promoted to a full development contract with Munster for the 2010–11 season. He was an integral part of the team when the internationals were away for the 2010 November Tests, putting in a big performance in Munster's historic 15–6 victory against Australia, a game which was also O'Mahony's first start for Munster.[8]

O'Mahony captained Munster in their opening Pro12 match against Dragons in September 2011,[9] and continued to captain Munster whilst their international contingent were away at the 2011 Rugby World Cup. He made his Heineken Cup debut for Munster against Northampton Saints on 12 November 2011,[10] a game in which he won the Man-of-the-Match award.[11] He scored his first try for Munster on 19 November 2011, in Munster's second Heinken Cup Pool One game against Castres.[12] O'Mahony won the Munster Young Player of the Year for the 2011–12 season.[13] He captained Munster in their 2011–12 Pro12 away play-off semi-final against Ospreys on 11 May 2012, which Munster lost 45–10.[14]

O'Mahony started for Munster in their opening fixture of the 2012–13 Heineken Cup on 13 October 2012, a 22–17 defeat at the hands of Racing 92.[15] He scored a try in their 33–0 win against Edinburgh in Round 2 on 21 October 2012.[16] He started in the 15–9 win against Saracens on 8 December 2012,[17] and also in the reverse fixture a week later, which Munster lost 19–13.[18] O'Mahony started against Edinburgh in the 26–17 Round 5 victory,[19] and also started in the crucial 29–6 win against Racing 92 that secured Munster a place in the quarter-finals.[20] He signed a new two-year contract with the IRFU in January 2013.[21] O'Mahony continued to start for Munster in the knockout-stage of the 2012–13 tournament, playing a crucial role in their 18–12 away quarter-final victory against Harlequins on 7 April 2013.[22] He also started the semi-final against Clermont Auvergne on 27 April 2013, which Munster lost 16–10.[23]

O'Mahony was named as the new Munster captain on 30 July 2013, replacing former All Black Doug Howlett, who retired at the end of the 2012–13 season.[24] He started for Munster against Edinburgh in the opening round of the 2013–14 Heineken Cup on 12 October 2013, captaining the side during their 29–23 defeat.[25] He moved to number 8 for Munster's second-round game against Gloucester on 19 October 2013, which Munster won 26–10.[26] He started against Perpignan on 8 December 2013, captaining the side to a 36–8 win.[27] O'Mahony started the reverse fixture away to Perpignan on 14 December 2013.[28]

2014–2018[edit]

He started the 20–7 away win against Gloucester on 11 January 2014, scoring a try in a win that secured quarter-final qualification.[29] O'Mahony started against Edinburgh on 19 January 2014, scoring a try in the 38–6 Round 6 win that secured a home quarter-final.[30] O'Mahony started in Munster's 47–23 Heineken Cup quarter-final win against Toulouse on 5 April 2014, but went off with a shoulder injury in the 18th minute.[31] The injury meant O'Mahony was ruled out of the remainder of the season as he had to have reconstructive surgery on his shoulder.[32] He also had surgery on his right shoulder to repair a long-standing issue.[33] O'Mahony was nominated for the IRUPA Players' Player of the Year 2014 award on 23 April 2014.[34]

O'Mahony returned from injury on 4 October 2014, coming on as a replacement against Leinster.[35] He started in Munster's first European Rugby Champions Cup game against Sale Sharks on 18 October 2014.[36] O'Mahony started against Saracens in Round 2 of the Champions Cup on 24 October 2014.[37] He started against Clermont Auvergne on 6 December 2014.[38] O'Mahony also started in the reverse fixture against Clermont on 14 December 2014.[39] He started against Saracens on 17 January 2015.[40] O'Mahony started at Number 8 against Sale Sharks on 25 January 2015.[41] O'Mahony signed a new three-year contract with Munster and the IRFU in February 2015.[42]

On 1 October 2016, O'Mahony made his comeback from the knee injury he suffered with Ireland during the 2015 Rugby World Cup, coming on as a replacement for Billy Holland in the 2016–17 Pro12 fixture against Zebre.[43] On 1 April 2017, O'Mahony was captain in Munster's 41–16 2016–17 European Rugby Champions Cup quarter-final victory against Toulouse, though he went off during the second-half with a leg injury.[44] Fortunately, the injury wasn't serious and O'Mahony was able to lead Munster in their Champions Cup semi-final against Saracens on 22 April 2017, which the defending champions won 26–10 in the Aviva Stadium, ending Munster's European season.[45] On 27 May 2017, O'Mahony captained Munster against Scarlets in the 2017 Pro12 Grand Final, which the Welsh side won 46–22.[46] O'Mahony signed a new three-year contract with the IRFU in December 2017, a deal that will see him remain with Munster until at least 2021.[47] He was Man-of-the-Match in Munster's 25–16 away win against Leicester Tigers in the 2017–18 European Rugby Champions Cup on 17 December 2017.[48] O'Mahony won his 100th cap for Munster on 26 December 2017, doing so when he started against Leinster in a 2017–18 Pro14 fixture.[49][50] O'Mahony was Man-of-the-Match in Munster's 20–19 Champions Cup quarter-final win against Toulon on 31 March 2018.[51]

Ireland[edit]

O'Mahony captained Ireland at Under-18 and Under-20 levels,[52] before being called up to the senior side in 2012. He made his full debut against Italy on 25 February 2012, coming on as a replacement for Seán O'Brien. He made his first start for Ireland in the game against Scotland on 10 March 2012, after an injury to Seán O'Brien.[53] By the end of Ireland's tour of New Zealand in 2012, he had played in all three back-row positions.[54][55][56] O'Mahony won the IRUPA Young Player of the Year award for the 2011–12 season.[57] He also played in the 2012 November Tests against South Africa and Argentina.[58][59]

In the 2013 Six Nations Championship O'Mahony played in all five games as Ireland finished fifth.[60][61][62][63][64][65] He also featured in the 2013 Ireland tour to North America,[66] and was made captain after Rory Best was called up to the 2013 British and Irish Lions squad.[67][68] In the 2013 Autumn Tests he scored his first try for Ireland, in a game against Samoa.[69]

O'Mahony featured in four of Ireland's games, picking up a Man-of-the-Match award against Wales, in their championship-winning 2014 Six Nations.[70][71][72][73][74] After playing against South Africa and Australia in the 2014 Guinness Series[75][76] O'Mahony started every game in the 2015 Six Nations Championship as Ireland retained their title,[77][78][79][80][81] the first time Ireland had won back-to-back championships since 1948-49.[82]

O'Mahony was selected in the final 31-man squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup,[83] and started pool games against Canada,[84] Italy,[85] and France, but went off with a knee injury during the second-half against France and was ruled out for the remainder of the World Cup.[86][87]

On 26 October 2016, O'Mahony was named in Ireland's squad for the 2016 end-of-year rugby union internationals.[88] On 12 November 2016, O'Mahony made his return to the senior Ireland team, captaining them in the 52–21 win against Canada.[89] On 23 January 2017, O'Mahony was named in the Ireland squad for the opening two rounds of the 2017 Six Nations Championship.[90] On 18 March 2017, O'Mahony was Man-of-the-Match in Ireland's 13–9 win against England, a victory that denied England consecutive Grand Slams in the Six Nations.[91]

He started in Ireland's wins against South Africa and Argentina during the 2017 Autumn Internationals.[92][93] O'Mahony started every game for Ireland as they won a Grand Slam in the 2018 Six Nations Championship. At the end of the game against England, O'Mahony gave his winner's medal to an Irish supporter with Down's Syndrome.[94][95][96][97][98][99] In the absence of the injured Rory Best, O'Mahony captained Ireland to a historic 2–1 series victory against Australia in June 2018, Ireland's first since 1979, with O'Mahony also winning his 50th test cap for Ireland in the third test.[100][101][102]

British and Irish Lions[edit]

2017[edit]

In April 2017, O'Mahony was selected in Warren Gatland's 41-man squad for the 2017 British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand.[103] On 7 June 2017, O'Mahony made his non-test debut for the Lions when he came off the bench against the Blues in Eden Park.[104][105] On 10 June, O'Mahony made his first start for the Lions, doing so in the match against the Crusaders in AMI Stadium.[106][107] On 17 June, O'Mahony captained the Lions in their game against the Māori All Blacks in Rotorua International Stadium. In doing so, he became the first Munster player since Paul O'Connell in 2013 to captain a Lions team.[108] O'Mahony played for 64 minutes, before being replaced by tour captain Sam Warburton, and led the side to a record 32–10 victory against the Māori.[109] On 24 June, O'Mahony captained the Lions in their 30–15 first test defeat against New Zealand in Eden Park.[110][111] He became the 11th Irishman to captain a British and Irish Lions test team and the first Cork Constitution player to do the same since Tom Kiernan in 1968.[112][113] However, O'Mahony was controversially dropped from the squad altogether for the second and third tests, with O'Mahony's former Ireland teammate Brian O'Driscoll, himself controversially dropped by Gatland before the third Lions test in 2013, remarking that there "has to be someone to point the finger at in defeat".[114][115][116][117]
