Dan Sheenan has committed his immediate future with Ireland and Leinster after signing a new two-year contract.

A former Ireland Under 20 international, Sheenan made his Test debut against Japan in November 2021. He has overall featured in 26 Tests for Ireland and was named on the World Rugby Dream Team of the Year in 2023.

He was also a key part in Ireland's 2023 Grand Slam success and the Six Nations title victory in 2024.

The 25-year-old made his Ireland debut in 2020 and has played over 50 times for the Irish province. He was also named in the team of the season during the 2022/23 United Rugby Championship campaign.

"I am delighted to commit my future to Leinster and continue my playing career in Ireland," said Sheehan.

"It means an enormous amount to wear the green of Ireland and blue of Leinster and I would like to thank all of my coaches, team-mates and support staff who help foster such positive environments.

"It is a hugely exciting time to be playing rugby in Ireland and I believe the best is yet to come at club and international levels in the months and years to come."

IRFU Performance Director David Nucifora is delighted with Sheenan committing his future with Ireland and Leinster.

"Dan is a world-class talent who continues to set the bar high in world rugby. His try-scoring stats are eye-catching but tell only part of the story of his value to the Ireland and Leinster dressing-rooms.

"It is a great boost for all supporters of Irish Rugby that he has decided to remain in Ireland over the coming seasons and I look forward to watching his development as he approaches the prime stages of his career."
