Leinster confirmed this morning that the 28-year-old has had to hang his boots up at the age of 28.
Former Gonzaga College @LansdowneFC #LeinsterRugby and @IrishRugby player Dominic Ryan has been forced to retire through injury. He played over 100 times for Leinster before moving to @LeicesterTigers in 2017. Very best of luck in the next chapter Dippy. #LeinsterFamily pic.twitter.com/g6JxEE1MLW

Ryan joined Leicester Tigers last season but in October the Premiership club announced that the back row was being stood down for 12 weeks due to concussion.
The Gonzaga college alumnus never appeared for the club thereafter and now Leinster have officially confirmed that their former player has called time on his playing career.
