O'Mahony signs a new IRFU deal

Ireland and Munster captain Peter O'Mahony has signed a new one-year contract with his province.

O'Mahony, a Cork native, has played over 182 times for his home province, 105 for Ireland, and 4 for the British & Irish Lions during his career.

On the international front, the 34-year-old has won two league titles with Munster and five Six Nations titles with Ireland, captaining Munster and Ireland to URC and Six Nations championships in the past 12 months.

The new deal puts an end to the speculation that O'Mahony could move to France. In the past 12 months, a number of French clubs, aware of O’Mahony’s contract expiring this summer, have expressed interest in the backrow forward.

Munster's next game will be against the Bulls in Pretoria on May 20.
