Commenting on the contract extension, Connacht head coach Kieran Keane said: “Tom has had a good start to the season and has really developed his game during his time with us.

Speaking about his decision to extend his time with Connacht, Dubliner Farrell admitted: “Having spent some time in England in 2016 it was great to get an opportunity to sign for Connacht back in January of this year. I’ve been really impressed with the set-up in Connacht and I think my game has benefited from the coaching I’ve received since arriving last season.

“I am delighted to be able to commit to the province for the next two seasons and hope to be part of more success for Connacht in the years to come.”
