Ireland International Dillane Extends Contract With Connacht

Ireland international Ultan Dillane is the latest player to commit his future to Connacht by signing a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the Sportsground up to the end of the 2020/21 season.

Ultan Dillane was first capped for Ireland against England during the 2016 Six Nations Championship, the same year that he memorably won a GUINNESS PRO12 title with Connacht.

The 25-year-old second row joined the Connacht Academy ahead of the 2012/13 season and made his debut for the province’s senior team in December 2014. He has gone on to make 73 appearances in the Connacht jersey to date.

Announcing the contract extension, Connacht head coach Andy Friend said: “We are delighted to announce that Ultan has signed a two-year contract extension. He has played the game at the highest level and brings a wealth of experience to our side. He will continue to be a central figure as we target further success in the seasons ahead.”

Dillane commented: “I am delighted to be extending my contract and committing to Connacht for a further two seasons. I’m proud of the fact that I have come through the Academy system in the province and gone on to play for Connacht and Ireland at senior level.

“There is huge confidence and ambition in the Connacht squad and throughout the organisation and I am really excited about what we can achieve over the next few years.”
