O’Mahony renews contract with IRFU

Rugby star, Peter O’Mahony has signed a three year contract with the IRFU which will see him remain at Munster until at least June 2018.

The dynamic back row made his senior debut for Munster against Ulster in January 2010 and has since made 68 appearances for Munster scoring 10 tries.

Peter made his Ireland debut in the 42 – 10 win over Italy in February 2012. The 25 year old has won 27 caps for his country and his most recent appearence in the green jersesy was in the 18 – 11 victory over France in the RBS 6 Nations Championship.

Peter is the current Munster captain and captained his country during the 2013 Summer Tour of North America.

IRFU performance director, David Nucifora, said, “Peter’s performances for Ireland over the past few seasons have been exceptional. The esteem in which he is held by Irish rugby is reflected in the fact that at the age of just 25 he has already captained his country and province. Leadership is just one of the many qualities he brings to Munster and Ireland and we are delighted that has committed to Irish rugby.”
