TOM Farrell has been unveiled as a new signing for URC title-holders Munster.

The 30-year-old will join the province from Connacht during the Summer on a two-year deal.

During his seven years in the West, the Dubliner (Coolmine RFC) scored 21 tries in well over 100 appearances.

A former Ireland U20 international, Farrell joined Connacht from Bedford Blues in 2017 (he also had an earlier spell with London Irish) and rapidly became a crucial member of their squad.

He has made 33 appearances for Connacht over the past two seasons, including starts in last year’s URC quarter-final and semi-final.

A creative midfielder with good offloading skills, Farrell earned a call-up to the Ireland squad for the 2019 Six Nations.
