Four Munster players have today received contract extensions with the province and the IRFU.
Second row Dave Foley, props Stephen Archer and Dave Kilcoyne along with full back Felix Jones are the players in question. Stephen Archer has been given a three-year contact with the others getting two years.
Dave Foley was recently named man-of-the-match on his Ireland debut against Georgia, a game in which Felix Jones also scored his first Ireland try.
Munster head coach Anthony Foley called the signings "hugely positive".
This is a great step forward for us. Securing players of this calibre is always a boost for the club and it shows our commitment to developing home-grown players and talent. These guys have come through the structures and have reached international level with so much more to come, and it's hugely positive for all involved.
