Quotes below from O Gara in the indo ,skipped the rest as Hugh Farrelly wrote the other words.
"Calls for my retirement ... what a joke given my record over the last few years," O'Gara said.
"Why should I? Anyone who knows me knows I'll be the first to call retirement when my time is up. And I can assure you my time ain't up. I plan to play for my country until I'm 38 but definitely until I'm 37. Playing is what it is all about. I love playing for Munster, I love playing for Ireland."
"I have never felt better about my rugby," said O'Gara, who turned 35 earlier this month. "I've never worked harder and I am as committed as ever.
"I'm fitter now than I was five years ago and my work rate in training is higher than it ever was.
"It was torture not starting in the (Six Nations) games. You question everything. But then you have to put it to one side -- it's not as if I could have been playing any better at the time -- and you have to stay professional.
"I continually question myself. Trust me, I will know when it is time for me to retire from international rugby. I'll be honest with myself and there will come a day when I can no longer produce at this level ... that day isn't even close."
