"I am delighted to have signed a new three year contract with Munster and the IRFU," said the second row.

O'Mahony  made his senior debut for Munster against Ulster in January 2010 and has since made 68 appearances for Munster scoring 10 tries.

He made his Ireland debut in the 42 – 10 win over Italy in February 2012.  The 25 year old has won 27 caps for his country and his last appearance for Ireland was in the 18 – 11 victory over France in the 2015 RBS 6 Nations Championship.

O'Mahony is the current Munster captain and captained his country during the 2013 Summer Tour of North America.
