Leinster and Ireland prop Cian Healy has signed a one-year contract extension which will keep him at the RDS until the end of next season.
The loose-head, who has 107 international caps, made his Leinster debut back in 2006 and has since made 226 appearances for the province.
In that time he has won six Guinness PRO14 titles and four Heineken Champions Cups.
“My drive for success at both Leinster and Ireland is as strong as ever," he said on news of the new deal.
"I am lucky enough to currently be part of two teams with the same mentality which is special and I look forward to another season of pushing boundaries and achieving our goals.
“I’m loving my rugby as much now as I did at the very start of my career and looking forward to having our supporters back in stadia.”
David Nucifora, IRFU Performance Director, added: “Cian has been a cornerstone of both the Irish and Leinster packs for over a decade.
"He has shown incredible resilience to come back from serious injury and perform at the highest level.
"Cian has a lot to contribute to Irish rugby and we are delighted that he has signed on for another year.”
Healy is the fourth high profile player to sign a contract extension over the past fortnight after Iain Henderson, Peter O'Mahony and Jonathan Sexton all put pen to paper on new deals.
