The IRFU and Munster have revealed that Conor Murray has signed a new two-year contract, which will see him stay at the province until June 2016.

Murray made his senior debut for Munster against Connacht in April 2010. The academy graduate has made 49 appearances for Munster.

He made his Ireland debut against France in a RWC warm-up in August 2011. The 24-year-old has won 22 caps and has scored two Test tries.

His last appearance for Ireland was in November 2013 against New Zealand at the Aviva Stadium.

Murray was selected for the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour of Australia and featured in seven of the tour matches including the final two Test games.

He scored two tries for the Lions touching down against Combined NSW-QLD Country and the Melbourne Rebels.

"We are delighted that Conor has signed a new IRFU contract which will secure him to Munster until the end of the 2016 season," said Munster coach Rob Penney.

"Conor has illustrated in recent months the value he brings to not only Munster but to the national team as well At 24 he is still a young guy and he has the potential to go on to become one of the best scrum-halves in the game."

Commenting on the new contract Murray said: "I am thrilled to sign a new IRFU contract and to continue playing my rugby with Munster.

In 2013 I learned a lot as a player with my province, Ireland and the Lions and I hope to continue to develop and push for honours over the coming years."
