Hurley, who won the Heineken Cup with Munster in 2008, took to Instagram last night to share a poignant message confirming that a "new challenge lies ahead".

"One last walk out. My wife nabbed this pic after the end of season game on Saturday," said Hurley alongside a picture of himself and his baby girl walking out onto the Thomond Park pitch after Munster's Pro12 win over Scarlets.

"I had our baby girl in my arms to get a pic together on the pitch. A moment she will never remember but both of us will remember for many reasons.

"All the memories this pitch has given us over the years & it culminated in a quiet moment for us to savour as a family. Happy to have played out my dreams here but now a new challenge awaits and we're excited about what may lie ahead. Thanks for all the support over the years @nessahurley #Emie-Rose."
