Donnacha Ryan has signed a new IRFU contract to remain with Munster until the end of the 2013/14 season.

Ryan made his debut for Munster in the 2004-05 season and has gone on to make 99 appearances for his home province. He was part of the Munster team that won the 2010/11 Magners League Grand Final, to add to being part of the squad that won the 2008 Heineken Cup and the 2008/09 Magners League.

He won his first Ireland A cap in 2008 and made his international debut against Argentina in Croke Park in November 2008 and has gone on to win 17 caps in total since then.

He was selected for the 2011 Rugby World Cup squad with his most recent cap being won when he made his first RBS 6 Nations Championship start against Scotland last weekend.
