Ireland flanker Peter O’Mahony will be on the national team’s books for another two years.
The 31 year-old has described his contract extension as a “huge privilege”.
Since making his debut in 2012, O’Mahony has notched up 74 Ireland caps and has captained the side on 8 occasions.
“It’s a huge privilege to sign on with the province and country I’ve grown up in and dreamed of playing for. "It’s been something I’ve been very open about saying from day one and its very pleasing to be able to continue the journey for two more years.
"There’s a huge amount of responsibility that comes with representing both teams and I understand how much pressure there is to deliver silverware, however, I am incredibly enthusiastic on the position and competitiveness of both Munster and Ireland and I look forward to hopefully contributing to both, to succeed in delivering that success on the pitch.”
