Gordon D'Arcy, a retired Irish rugby player, had a successful career playing for Leinster at inside centre. He achieved three Heineken Cup wins, a challenge cup, and four league titles with Leinster. He also won two Six Nations titles and competed in a Grand Slam with the Irish national team. Despite turning down an offer to play for the Irish squad while still in school, Gordon later joined Lansdowne Football Club and made his debut for Ireland as a substitute player in the World Cup game against Romania. He was recognized as the player of the tournament in the 2004 Six Nations and was nominated for IRB Player of the Year. Despite facing injuries in the 2004-2005 season, Gordon secured a place in the British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand. He continued to excel in the Six Nations Championships in 2006 and 2007. In 2009, he played for the Barbarians squad against England and Australia. Gordon's notable achievement came in the Rugby World Cup 2011, where he set a world record with Brian O'Driscoll for the most appearances in a centre partnership in international rugby. Now retired, Gordon is available as a rugby speaker, sharing inspiring anecdotes and experiences at corporate events. He also writes opinion pieces for the Irish Times, showcasing his knowledge and passion for rugby. To inquire about hiring Gordon D'Arcy for an event, contact PepTalk.
