Ulster have secured the future of exciting young winger Craig Gilroy on a three-year deal that will keep him at Ravenhill well into 2016.
Gilroy is rated as one of the best prospects in Irish rugby and he has signed a new three-year contract on the back of scoring a hat-trick for an Ireland XV against Fiji last weekend.
The 21-year-old announced himself on the European stage with a spectacular try in Ulster's victory over Munster in last season's Heineken Cup quarter-finals, a score voted Try of the Season at the 2012 IRUPA Player Awards.
"I am delighted that I will be playing my rugby at Ravenhill well into 2016," said Gilroy.
"I am proud to play for my Province - representing Ulster means a great deal to me. Things are going really well at the moment.
"We have had a good start to both the RaboDirect PRO12 and the Heineken Cup and it is great to be a part of. I am looking forward to helping Ulster be successful over the course of the rest of this season and the next three seasons."
