Connacht Rugby are delighted to announce that Cian Prendergast has signed a long-term deal with the club until 2025.
Prendergast had 12 months remaining on his initial deal, but like Mack Hansen has also agreed to extend his time at the club by at least an additional two years.
The flanker has been a revelation at Connacht since first joining the Academy in the summer of 2020. After just a few months in the West he came on for his Professional debut away to Edinburgh in October 2020 – his first of 10 appearances for Connacht last season.
This year he has cemented his place in the first XV, starting at blindside flanker in 19 of Connacht’s 23 games this season. His consistently excellent performances also resulted in a call up to the Ireland squad as a development player for the start of their Guinness Six Nations camp.
