Cian Healy is highly regarded as one of the best loose-head props in European rugby, having helped Leinster lift the Heineken Cup in 2009, 2011 and 2012.
His presence in the front-row has been a key weapon for club and country and handed his team-mates a solid attacking platform. Since winning his first cap for Ireland - versus Australia in November 2009 - he has made himself a firm fixture for his country.
On his last appearance against the Wallabies at the 2011 World Cup, he delivered a man-of-the-match performance when Ireland won 10-6 at Eden Park and he will hope to repeat the feat on his first British & Irish Lions tour.
He launched his career at Clontarf RFC and made his Leinster debut in the final home game of the 2006/07 season when he replaced Reggie Corrigan late on against Border Reivers. He was part of the Ireland U20 side which clinched the Grand Slam in 2007.
He won a RaboDirect PRO12 winners' medal with Leinster in 2008 before he came to the fore a year later, featuring 24 times for Michael Cheika's side. He toured with Ireland A and clinched the Churchill Cup in the summer of 2009
Since his international debut, Healy has given Ireland the edge in games against top-class opponents such as South Africa, Australia and England.
At club level, he played an integral part in Leinster's double European success. He crashed over for a crucial try in an away win over Clermont Auvergne and repeated the feat against Ulster at Twickenham to hand Leinster a third Heineken title in four seasons.
In January 2013, Healy signed a new three year deal with Leinster Rugby and the IRFU. His 2013 Six Nations campaign was cut short through suspension following a citing.
