BREAKING | “I’m delighted and grateful” | Conor Murray extends IRFU contract to 2024

Ireland and Munster Rugby have announced that Conor Murray has signed an IRFU contract extension which will see him continue his career at his home province up to at least the end of July 2024.

Murray made his Munster debut against Connacht in 2010 and has represented the province on 153 occasions scoring 170 points, winning a Celtic Cup title in 2011.

Speaking on the announcement Murray said,

“I’m delighted and grateful to be able to continue living this dream of playing here in Ireland. With my home province Munster and the national squad, I truly believe there’s huge potential of success and that there will be many more big days ahead.”

Murray made his international debut against France in August 2011 in a Rugby World Cup warm-up game and has since gone on to represent his country at three Rugby World Cups (2011, 2015, 2019).

The 32-year-old has won 92 caps for Ireland winning three Six Nations championship titles to date (2014, 2015, 2018).

He has toured with the British and Irish Lions on three occasions and during the summer was made tour captain in the absence of the injured Alun Wyn Jones.  He has played in eight Test matches for the Lions across the three tours (2013, 2017, 2021).
