Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
Confirming O'Gara's well-being, team manager Brian O'Brien said, " Ronan has done all that was asked of him during our two day get together. He trained yesterday and came through that fine, it's a question of so far so good at this stage." " Now he hasn't played since the Celtic League final and that was a month ago so he'll play for his club on Saturday and we'll see how he is after that."
As Marcus Horan is expected to be named in the starting line up for the French game, he will turn out for Shannon against Blackrock as will Alan Quinlan and they will be opposed by their Ireland team-mate, Leo Cullen.
Both Girvan Dempsey and Shane Horgan remain on the doubtful list and both have been asked to rest their injuries which will be assessed on Monday.
