Ireland international Peter O'Mahony becomes the latest player to commit his immediate future with Irish Rugby Football Union after signing a new two-year deal.
The 31-year-old will also extend his stay with Munster after being part of the Irish club since his professional rugby debut in 2010 making 141 appearances for them. He was also appointed the captain of the club in 2013.
“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 to the official website of the club.
“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.”
The 6ft 3in back-row made his Ireland debut during the 2012 Six Nations tournament and has gone on to play 74 Tests including eight appearances in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups combined. He also was part of the British and Irish Lions squad that toured New Zealand in 2017 where he played a solitary Test.
“Peter has played a leadership role in Munster from an early age and is one of the senior leaders in the national squad," said IRFU performance director David Nucifora.
“He is a competitor and passionate about playing for both Ireland and Munster.”
