“I am delighted to have signed on with London Irish,” said O’Sullivan.

“I’m really excited to begin working under the likes of Declan Kidney and Les Kiss, and I’m looking forward to contributing to the squad effort as best I can. It will also be an excellent opportunity to develop my game while playing in the competitive league that is the Premiership.

I can’t wait to get going in pre-season and to link up with my new team-mates. I’m eagerly awaiting what will hopefully be a successful season for the club.”

Declan Kidney, Director of Rugby added: “Hugh will add great competition in the scrum-half position and will be joining an already hungry group of players vying for the starting 9 jersey.
