Farrell recently led Ireland to a first ever series win in New Zealand.
Ireland Men’s Head Coach, Andy Farrell, has signed a two-year contract extension that will see him remain in his position until at least August 2025.
Farrell oversaw Ireland’s series win over New Zealand earlier this month, a first for the country away to the All Blacks with the World Cup just over a year away.
Ahead of the Council meeting, IRFU Chief Executive Kevin Potts said:
“I am delighted to confirm that Andy Farrell has accepted a two-year contract extension as the head coach of our men’s international team which will keep him at the helm of that team until at least August 2025, and there is an option to extend the contract further, based on a number of mutually agreed performance markers.
Commenting on the new deal, Farrell said:
“I am happy to extend my contract with Irish Rugby for a further two years. As a group we have made it clear that we are building towards the 2023 Rugby World Cup, and we have taken some decent strides in that regard in recent months.
“Ahead of the tour to New Zealand myself and David (Nucifora) looked at the opportunities and challenges facing the national squad after the tournament in France. I am excited about continuing to work with the group and with the next generation of Irish international players.”
