Dave Foley will become the latest Munster player to swap Munster for France after the province confirmed that he is on his way to Pau.

In making the move to the French club Foley follows in the footsteps of his former Munster colleagues James Coughlan, Paddy Butler and Sean Dougall.

A product of the Munster academy, the Clonmel native made his debut against Connacht in April 2010 and went on to make his European debut starting against Gloucester in January 2014.

In making 84 appearances for the province, the 28-year-old made his final Munster appearance against Scarlets at the end of February as he rehabs a wrist injury for the remainder of the season.

On the international front the Tipperary lock has 2 Ireland caps, making his debut against Georgia in the 2014 November Internationals.  He has also represented Emerging Ireland on two tours, Georgia 2013 and Romania 2014.
