Cian Healy signs for two more years with Leinster and Ireland

Cian Healy

Leinster and Ireland loosehead prop Cian Healy has committed to a new two-year contract.

Racking up 207 appearances in the Blue of Leinster to date, Healy is well on the path to achieving legendary status at the RDS having played in all four Champions Cup-winnings teams.

Though the province was unable to make it a fifth title when finishing as runners-up to Saracens, Leinster will head to Celtic Park to face Glasgow Warriors in the PRO14 final.

Locked in to start if available and destined to play a part for Ireland at the World Cup later this year, 31-year-old Healy shared his pride.

“Pulling on a Leinster or an Ireland jersey is something that I have always taken a huge amount of pride in and I am thankful for every opportunity I get,” Healy said. “I am delighted therefore to have extended my IRFU contract and to continue to line out for Leinster.

“I believe that we have built something special at Leinster and with the national team and I want to contribute as best I can to both teams in what will be a hugely exciting few months and years ahead.

“There has been some difficult times over the last few years for me personally with injury but the support within the Leinster and the Irish rugby family was very humbling from fellow players, coaches and supporters and it’s something that I won’t forget. It made this decision all the easier knowing that I was part of something bigger than just a rugby team.

“I hope to play my part in helping Leinster and Ireland achieve further success over the next few years and I’m looking forward to the next chapter in that journey.”

Healy has won 88 caps for Ireland, claiming three Six Nations championship and playing in the two historic wins against New Zealand in 2016 and 2018.
