Healy is a former Nenagh Ormond and Glenstal Abbey man and plays his club rugby with Garryowen. He helped the Ireland U20s to the Grand Slam last year.

Healy will become the third Greencore Munster Rugby Academy player registered in the 41-man squad, joining prop Keynan Knox and back-row forward Jack O’Sullivan.

Munster will face Saracens, Racing 92 and Ospreys in the Pool stages of the 2019/20 Champions Cup with some mouthwatering Pool games to be played over the next three months.

The registration of incoming Swap Players can be reversed before Thursday, March 26, 2020. Each player can only replace the player who was initially nominated as his incoming Swap Player.

Each club may also register up to five Additional Players during the pool stages, but none during the knockout stages, each to replace a player previously registered. A minimum of three Additional Players must be front row players.

For the knockout stages, clubs can add up to three players to supplement their squads.
