Ireland legend Peter O'Mahony signs new contract with Munster

Munster Rugby and the IRFU are pleased to confirm that Ireland captain Peter O'Mahony has signed a new one-year contract with the province.

To date, the Cork Constitution man has made 291 professional rugby appearances which includes 182 for Munster, 105 for Ireland and 4 for the British & Irish Lions, the latter of which saw O'Mahony receive a Lions cap when he led the side in the first Test against the All Blacks in June 2017.

The 34-year-old has won two league titles with Munster and five 6 Nations titles with Ireland, captaining Munster and Ireland to URC and Six Nations championships in the past 12 months.

O'Mahony joined the Academy in 2008 and made his debut away to Ulster as a 21-year-old in 2010. He won his first league title with Munster in 2011 and in 2012 made his Ireland debut along with winning Munster's Young Player of the Year award.

He was named club captain in 2013 and was our longest-serving captain of the professional era, stepping down from the role after over ten years earlier this season. He won Munster's Player of the Year award in 2019 and so far this season, has made five appearances for Munster and 11 appearances for Ireland.
