Ryan has penned a three-year deal and is now contracted with the province until June 2019.

The news comes on the back of last week’s confirmation that James Cronin and Mike Sherry had both committed their futures to the province.

“It is great to continue with the good news on the contract front and we are very happy to see Andrew and John commit their futures to Munster,” remarked Munster head coach Anthony Foley.

“Andrew has come in showing us what he is capable of and watching him develop within the squad has been great to see while in the pack John continues to excel in the front row, alternating between two difficult positions.

He made his debut against Zebre in September 2013 and has now made 42 appearances while scoring 11 tries.
