Peter O'Mahony Signs New Two-Year Deal With IRFU

Peter O'Mahony has signed a new two-year contract with the IRFU. The new deal keeps him playing for Munster until the end of the 2023 season.

Since making his Ireland debut in 2012, O'Mahony has won 74 caps and captained the side eight times. He was absent from the Ireland team for the Six Nations games against France and Italy after being sent off in the opening game of the competition against Wales.

"It’s a huge privilege to sign on with the province and country I’ve grown up in and dreamed of playing for," said O'Mahony.

"It’s been something I’ve been very open about saying from day one and it's very pleasing to be able to continue the journey for two more years.

"There’s a huge amount of responsibility that comes with representing both teams and I understand how much pressure there is to deliver silverware, however, I am incredibly enthusiastic on the position and competitiveness of both Munster and Ireland and I look forward to hopefully contributing to both, to succeed in delivering that success on the pitch.”
