These victories would set up an Heineken Cup semi-final in Lansdowne Road against Munster, but defeat against the eventual champions Munster would deny O'Driscoll and his team a final berth.
Leinster were also denied a Magners League title, with David Humphreys of Ulster slotting an injury time drop goal to give victory to Ulster in their final game of the season.
The Leinster star will have retired from the game by the time the tournament comes around in September 2015 and is a top target for the telly executives.
In 2001, Leinster won the inaugural Celtic League beating Munster in Lansdowne Road.
In 2003, Leinster were heavy favourites for that year's Heineken Cup but were beaten by Perpignan in the semi-finals.
