WATCH: Conor Murray signs deal to stay at Munster until 2022

Ireland and Munster Rugby are delighted to confirm that Conor Murray signed an IRFU contract extension in early September which will see him play his rugby in Ireland up to at least the end of June 2022.

Since making his international debut against France in August 2011, Conor has won 67 caps for Ireland. He started every game of the 2014 and 2015 6 Nations Championship successes as well wearing the No.9 jersey in every game of the 2018 Grand Slam campaign.

Conor played a central role in Ireland’s first victory over the Springbok on South African soil in 2016 and later that year again starred in Ireland’s first win over New Zealand at Soldier Field in Chicago. He started all three Tests in the recent series success over Australia.

He has represented Ireland at two Rugby World Cups playing in both the 2011 and 2015 tournaments. A two time British and Irish Lions tourist Conor has featured in five Test matches for the Lions including starting all three Tests against New Zealand in 2017.

A graduate of the Munster Rugby Academy, Conor made his Munster debut against Connacht in 2010 and has represented the province on 116 occasions scoring 142 points and winning a Celtic League title in 2011. 

From Patrickswell in Limerick, his club Garryowen FC and school St Munchin’s College provided the foundations for a stellar career in professional rugby. Awarded Munster Rugby Academy Player of the Year in 2011 and Player of the Year in 2014, the 29-year-old has played a major role in the province’s successes over the past eight years. 

David Nucifora, IRFU Performance Director, commented,

“Conor is a genuinely world class player and he has illustrated this through the consistent quality of the performances he delivers for both Ireland and Munster. He has played a central role in driving the success that has been achieved at national level and we are delighted that he will continue to play his rugby in Ireland for at least the next three seasons.”
