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.

According to the IRFU - who don't comment on the specifics of contracts - the deal was signed in September, thus heading off any potential interest from overseas in the two-time Lions tourist.

Murray, 29, is now sidelined with a neck injury he suffered in Ireland's final Test against Australia in June. The contract, wholly funded by the IRFU, is believed to make Murray the IRFU's highest paid player, as revealed by the Limerick Leader last month.

The scrum-half has featured at two Rugby World Cups for Ireland in 2011 and 2015, and two British & Irish Lions tours in 2013 and 2017 - picking up five Lions Test caps as part of the victorious tour to Australia and draw in New Zealand.

Since making his worldwide debut against France in August 2011, Conor Murray has won 67 caps for Ireland.

"Over the past few seasons I've enjoyed great days in the green of Ireland and the red of my home province Munster".

"Luckily, I've managed to do that a few times and I get to look forward to doing it more hopefully".

He started every match of Ireland's Grand Slam-winning Six Nations campaign this year, kicking a decisive penalty in the victory against England, and he played all but two minutes of the three-Test series against the Wallabies in June.

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".
