He also was named the Munster Rugby Young Player of the Year in 2012 and Munster Rugby Men's Player of the Year in 2019.

He was named club captain in 2013 and held the role over 10 years before stepping down.

O'Mahony made his Ireland debut in 2012 and has played in 105 Tests for Ireland while winning the Six Nations titles five times 2014, 2015, 2018, 2023 and 2024 that includes two Grand Slam triumph. He also has played in four games for the British and Irish Lions.
