Ulster's Paddy Wallace has confirmed that he will retire at the end of this season.
Wallace, who has played 189 times for the province, is Ulster's all-time appearance record holder.
The ex-Campbell College pupil began his career at fullback and outhalf and made his debut for Ulster in the 2001/02 season, but recently moved to inside-centre.
The 34-year-old has won 30 caps for Ireland, the highlight of which was winning the Grand Slam in 2009.
In the past 18 months his game-time for Ulster has been restricted due to injury and he played his last game against Zebre in December 2013.
Wallace said: "I have been happy to call Ulster my home for all my life and to play at the one Province for a whole career is something that is really special.
"Professional rugby is all I have known for the past 14 years. I am going to miss playing at Ravenhill, the fa ns and everything involved with being a rugby player.
"However, I have lots of fond memories. I have had a great career and I wouldn't change anything for the world."
