Earls made his debut for Ireland against Canada in 2008 and toured with the British and Irish Lions in 2009. The Moyross winger has scored 57 tries for his province since 2007 and will now be hoping to add to his tally in the next year or so.

David Nucifora, IRFU Performance Director, commented, “Keith is a vastly experienced senior international player who continues to perform for both Ireland and Munster. He is a model professional and sets a great example for young players coming through in both the provincial and national environments.”

Earls said: “Munster and Ireland are building strong squads with exciting talent coming through ensuring two very competitive environments.

“I want to play a role for Munster this season and next and I am as passionate as ever about pulling on the green jersey and being successful with Ireland.“
