Latest update : 2008-03-20

Eddie O'Sullivan has stepped down as Ireland's coach following his team's poor showing in the 2008 Six Nations tournament and 2007 World Cup, having failed to get the best out of Ireland's "golden generation".

DUBLIN, March 19 (Reuters) - Eddie O'Sullivan has resigned
as Ireland coach after the disappointing Six Nations campaign,

"At the conclusion of the Six Nations championship and
having given my role as national team head coach much
consideration, I have come to the decision to step down,"
O'Sullivan said in a statement.
 

Ireland finished fourth in the Six Nations Championship,
winning two matches out of five.
