Leinster number eight Jamie Heaslip has signed a fresh contract with Irish Rugby Football Union which will keep him committed until 2019 World Cup.
The 33-year-old made his debut for Ireland in 2006 and has played 98 Tests so far which also includes five games for British and Irish Lions. Heaslip will also continue his club career with Leinster until his Ireland contract expires.
In his 12-year career for the Pro 12 side, Heaslip has also played over 200 games and captained Ireland in the recent Six Nations clash against Italy in the absence of Rory Best.
"My aim when I started my professional rugby career was to leave the jersey - either the blue of Leinster or the green of Ireland - in a better place than when I first put it on, and this new contract gives me the chance to continue to chase this dream," he said.
IRFU performance director David Nucifora said: "Jamie continues to illustrate why he is one of the top performers in international rugby.
"He is a leader for both his country and province, and delivers a high level of performance every time he pulls on the green or blue jersey."
