CareerEdit

Tuohy started rugby on the wing for Weston-super-Mare R.F.C. Colts before becoming a second row forward. He made his first professional appearance for Gloucester against London Irish in the Guinness Premiership and received the man of the match award. In May 2012, he scored Ulster's only try in the 14-42 defeat to Leinster in the Heineken Cup final. On 30 September 2017 Tuohy joined Leicester on a 3-month loan,[2] making his debut on 7 October against London Irish.[3] Tuohy recently departed Bristol Rugby and is now signed to Stade Français, making his debut on 11 March 2018.

IrelandEdit

In May 2010, Tuohy was named in the 33-man squad for Ireland's summer tour to New Zealand and Australia.[4] He played for Ireland in the non-cap match against the Barbarians on 4 June 2010.[5] On 12 June 2010, Tuohy made his test debut, coming on in the first half of the game against New Zealand in New Plymouth. Ireland lost the game by 66–28, with Tuohy scoring a try in the first minute after coming on.[6] In 2014, Tuohy was called up to replace Paul O' Connell in Ireland's home six nations game against Scotland. He played a pivotal role in Ireland's victory over the Scots and retained his position on the bench for Ireland's next home game against Wales. His appearance as a substitute in that game was cut short with a broken forearm.
