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 clubman has made 291 professional rugby appearances, which includes 182 for Munster, 105 for Ireland, and four for the British & Irish Lions, the latter of which saw him receive a Lions cap when he was captain for the first Test against the All Blacks in 2017.

The 34-year-old back rower has won two league Championships with Munster, and five Six Nations titles with Ireland, captaining both his province and country to BKT URC and Guinness Six Nations glory, respectively, in the past 12 months.

A former PBC Cork student, O’Mahony joined the Munster Academy in 2008 and made his debut away to Ulster as a 21-year-old in 2010.

He won his first league crown with Munster in 2011, and the following year he made his Ireland debut along with winning Munster’s Young Player of the Year award.

He was named club captain in 2013 and is Munster’s longest-serving captain of the professional era, stepping down from the role after over 10 years earlier this season.

He won Munster’s Player of the Year award in 2019 and, so far this season, he has made five appearances for Munster and 11 appearances for Ireland.
