O’Mahony signs contract extension with Munster

Peter O'Mahony has signed a contract extension with Munster.

AFTER much speculation, Peter O’Mahony is to continue on with Munster for at least another season.

The one-year contract extension is welcome news for a province with whom he has made almost 200 appearances.

O’Mahony, 34, is a four-time Lion and the 105-time capped International led Ireland to a Six Nations Championship earlier in the Spring.

Last year, he captained Munster to win the United Rugby Championship.

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

He won his first league title with Munster in 2011 and in 2012 made his Ireland debut along with winning Munster’s Young Player of the Year award.

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

O’Mahony won Munster’s Player of the Year award in 2019 and so far in 2024, has made five appearances for Munster and 11 for Ireland.
