He has also earned six caps for Ireland, the most recent three coming against the USA and Japan last June. O’Halloran grew up in Clifden, Co. Galway and played his underage rugby with Connemara.

Commenting on the re-signing of the international full-back, Connacht Rugby CEO Willie Ruane said: “We are delighted to announce that Tiernan has signed a contract extension to take him up to the end of the 2019/20 season.

“Tiernan is a Connacht man who has graduated through the club game, into our Academy and on to wear the green jerseys of Connacht and Ireland. He is an example of what our ‘Grassroots to Green Shirts’ vision represents. He has been an outstanding player for us over the past few seasons and will no doubt be a central figure for us as we target further success in the seasons ahead.”

Commenting on his contract extension, the 26-year-old O’Halloran added: “I am a proud Connacht man and am delighted to be extending my contract with my home province for a further two years. The current squad is an ambitious group and we are determined to bring further success to Connacht.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Connacht supporters who have been loyal to me and the entire team, season after season.”
