Munster have announced that backs Denis Hurley and Johne Murphy have both signed one-year contract extensions that will see them remain with the province until June 2015.

A product of the Munster Rugby academy, Hurley has made 130 appearances for the province, scoring 10 tries.

The 29-year-old won an international cap against USA in June 2009.

Kildare man Johne Murphy joined Munster at the start of the 2010/11 season after five seasons with Leicester Tigers.

Murphy has made 79 appearances and scored 12 tries for the province, playing centre, wing and fullback.

Munster also confirmed the signing of Dublin University tight-head prop Martin Kelly on a one-year development contract.

Ian Nagle, who is currently on loan to Newcastle Falcons, will finish with Munster  at the end of the current season, despite being offered a contract by the province.
