100 times capped prop Cian Healy has extended his contract with the national team and Leinster until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Healy has made 107 appearances for the national team since making his debut against Australia in November 2009.

The 33-year old loosehead has won three Six Nations titles and a Grand Slam with Ireland and was part of the British and Irish Lions tour down under in 2013.

Dublin native Healy has worn the blue of Leinster 226 times, lifting the European Cup on four occasions.

The IRFU are in the process of mopping up their contract business at the moment, with captain Johnny Sexton and forwards Peter O'Mahony and Iain Henderson already agreeing to new deals.

Healy says he is enjoying the game as much as ever:

"My drive for success at both Leinster and Ireland is as strong as ever. I am lucky enough to be currently 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 start of my career and looking forward to having our supporters back in stadia."
