Leinster and Ireland prop Cian Healy has signed a new two-year deal with the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU).
The 31-year-old forward has agreed to remain with the Pro14 champions and European Champions Cup runners-up until the end of the 2021 season.
Healy, capped 88 times by Ireland, is excited by what the future holds for club and country after putting pen to paper on an extension four days before Leinster face Glasgow Warriors in the Pro14 final.
“Pulling on a Leinster or an Ireland jersey is something that I have always taken a huge amount of pride in and I am thankful for every opportunity I get. I am delighted therefore to have extended my IRFU contract and to continue to line up for Leinster.” said Healy.
“I believe that we have built something special at Leinster and with the national team and I want to contribute as best I can to both teams in what will be a hugely exciting few months and years ahead.
“I hope to play my part in helping Leinster and Ireland achieve further success over the next few years and I’m looking forward to the next chapter in that journey.”

“There has been some difficult times over the last few years for me personally with injury but the support within the Leinster and the Irish rugby family was very humbling and it’s something that I won’t forget.
“It made this decision all the easier knowing that I was part of something bigger than just a rugby team. I hope to play my part in helping Leinster and Ireland achieve further success over the next few years and I’m looking forward to the next chapter in that journey.”
