Neil Cronin, Colm Hogan and Andrew O’Mahony depart Munster

The province thanked the trio for their contributions to Munster Rugby and wished them all the best for the future.

Munster Rugby have confirmed that Neil Cronin, Colm Hogan and Andrew O’Mahony have completed their time at the province.

Scrum-half Cronin scored two tries in 39 Munster appearances since making his debut as a non-contracted player against Leinster in December 2014.

He signed his first contract in 2018 after a number of impressive seasons with Garryowen in the All Ireland League.

A strong start to his first season as a member of the senior squad saw Neily score one try in 11 appearances, including a Champions Cup debut away to Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park.

He made a further eight appearances the following year but a long-term knee injury saw him miss almost the entire 2020/21 season.

Cronin bounced back to make 10 appearances in 2021/22 and over the last two seasons has featured in both wins against South Africa A and Crusaders at SuperValu Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Back three player Hogan departs after helping Munster to victories over Harlequins and Crusaders in February having joined on a short-term contract in November.

The 27-year-old has been starring for Garryowen since joining the province and is a former Glenstal Abbey student.

He previously captained Dublin University in the AIL, had a spell with Colomiers in the PRO D2 and lined out for Tasman Mako in the NPC earlier this year.

UCC scrum-half O’Mahony departs having completed his two-month contract with the province.

A former CBC student and Ireland U20 international, O’Mahony featured for Munster A against the Connacht Eagles at the start of the season.

The province thanked the trio for their contributions to Munster Rugby and wished them all the best for the future.
