Ireland's O'Connell ruled out of Rugby World Cup

Ireland have confirmed that captain Paul O'Connell has been ruled out of the Rugby World Cup due to injury.

His early exit from the Rugby World Cup means that he has played his last game for Ireland as he announced that he will retire from international rugby after the world cup.

British and Irish Lions captain O'Connell suffered a significant hamstring injury and will undergo surgery this week.

O'Connell has agreed to continue playing for Toulon after the tournament but his time out of the game will depend on the outcome of the surgery.

Mike McCarthy has been called into the Ireland World Cup squad as O'Connell's replacement and will join the squad in Cardiff on Tuesday.
