Ireland scrum-half Conor Murray has signed a new contract extension with Irish Rugby Football Union and Munster Rugby until 2024.

Murray made his professional rugby debut with Munster in 2010 and went on to represent them in 153 games scoring 170 points. He also went on to win the Celtic Cup title with the club in 2011.

The 32-year-old made his Ireland debut in August 2011 and has gone on to play 92 Tests including 13 appearances that came across the 2011, 2015 and 2019 World Cups.

He also had represented British and Irish Lions in eight games having featured for them in the 2013, 2017 and 2021 tours of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa respectively. Murray also temporarily captained the Lions in the summer this year when Alun Wyn Jones was unavailable due to a dislocated shoulder.

“I’m delighted and grateful to be able to continue living this dream of playing here in Ireland," he told in a statement released by Irish Rugby.

"With my home province Munster and the national squad, I truly believe there’s huge potential of success and that there will be many more big days ahead.”

IRFU performance director David Nucifora expressed delight with Murray committing his future with Ireland and Munster.

“Conor has had some challenges in the past few seasons but has put some niggling injuries behind him to play a central role with Munster, Ireland and the Lions.

"He is a popular figure in every squad he is involved in and adds a huge amount of experience and value to younger players coming through.”
