James Ryan signs new IRFU deal

James Ryan has signed a new deal with the IRFU.

The Leinster lock has put pen to paper on a new two year contract that will keep him with the province until the end of the 2024/25 season.

The 26 year old played a central role in the 2018 and 2023 Grand Slam successes along with the Triple Crown secured in 2022, and has won 53 Ireland caps, captaining his country on 7 occasions.

Ryan has also played for Leinster 71 times, winning the Championship Cup in 2018.

IRFU Performance Director, David Nucifora commented, “James has established himself as a world class lock and is developing as a strong leader within the national squad and with his province. He has achieved a lot already in his career but at just 26 years of age he continues to develop his game and will be a force for Ireland and Leinster for years to come.”

James Ryan commented, “The ambition of Leinster and Ireland to improve each day and win trophies is one of the reasons why it is so enjoyable to be part of these squads. There is also a great camaraderie and competitive edge in both squads. I have also been fortunate to captain my country over the past couple of seasons which has been an incredibly proud moment for me and my family.”
