Munster complete the signing of centre from rival Irish province

Done deal.

Munster Rugby are pleased to announce the signing of 30-year-old centre Tom Farrell ahead of the 2024/25 season on a two-year deal.

Farrell will join Munster after a very successful seven-year spell at Connacht where he has scored 21 tries in 112 appearances to date where he is expected to replace the outgoing Antoine Frisch.

A former Ireland U20 international, Farrell joined Connacht from Bedford Blues in 2017 and quickly became a key member of their squad. A creative midfielder with good offloading skills, Farrell earned a call-up to the Ireland squad for the 2019 Six Nations.

He has made 33 appearances for Connacht over the past two seasons, including starts in last year’s URC quarter-final and semi-final.

Born in Dublin, Farrell came up through the ranks at Coolmine RFC before spending three years in the Leinster Academy. He had spells with London Irish and Bedford Blues in England before a successful seven years at Connacht.
