Donncha O'Callaghan will begin his coaching career but it's not in rugby

Donncha O'Callaghan is known to be a bit of a messer.

Ask any of his former teammates who was the practical joker in the camp and O'Callaghan's name usually pops up.

He's a free spirit, there's no doubt about that.

Yet, he didn't earn 94 caps for Ireland by laughing and joking, he is an extremely hard worker and would give everything for the cause.

And while the season has concluded for his club Worcester Warriors, he now has some time off where he will do some coaching.

But it isn't in rugby, O'Callaghan will join the coaching staff on RTÉ's Ireland's Fittest Family.

He will join Wexford hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald, Olympian Derval O'Rourke and season four winner Anna Geary.

Speaking about his new job, O'Callaghan says,

After watching it at home for years I’m dying to get stuck into Ireland’s Fittest Family…and personally I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer than winding- up Davy Fitz!"
