Munster Confirm Signing Of Beirne On Two-Year Deal

Munster Rugby and the IRFU have confirmed that Tadhg Beirne will join the province at the start of the 2018/19 season on a two-year contract.

Tadhg Beirne will make the move from the Scarlets where he has, to date, made 29 competitive appearances after making the switch from Leinster at the start of the 2016/17 season.

The move to the Llanelli outfit proved to be career defining as the 25-year-old lock developed into one of the region’s leading forwards.  He rounded off his breakthrough season with an outstanding performance in the Welsh side’s GUINNESS PRO12 title win in May.

A former Ireland Under-20 international, the Kildare man featured in all of Ireland’s games during the 2012 Under-20 Six Nations and Junior World Championship campaigns, lining out with current Munster players JJ Hanrahan, Chris Farrell and Niall Scannell.

Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac said: “We are disappointed to lose such a quality player and quality person from the group but fully understand that Tadhg has aspirations to play for Ireland.

“He’s developed well in the last fourteen months as a player and we’ve seen the benefits of all the hard work he’s put in since joining the Scarlets. Tadhg’s fully focused and committed to continuing his rich vein of form for the remainder of the season.”
