Ireland coach Kidney leaves after poor Six Nations

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Declan Kidney's five-year tenure as Ireland coach ended on Tuesday after the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) decided not to renew his contract following the national team's worst Six Nations championship in 14 years. Kidney led Ireland to a first Six Nations grand slam in 61 years in 2009 but his side won just one game in this year's championship, narrowly avoiding a first wooden spoon since a whitewash in 1998 by finishing ahead of France on points difference.
