IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne has issued a statement following confirmation of Ronan O'Gara's decision to retire from playing professional rugby.
Meetings have taken place in Leinster, Munster and Connacht to date (the Ulster date has been postponed due to the tragic deaths in the Spence family).
The engagement and feedback at these meetings has been hugely positive. Once this stage of the review process is completed the views will be collated and feed into the final Strategic Plan with a planned launch in January 2013.
