Commenting on the signing, Connacht Head Coach, Kieran Keane said: “We are delighted that Sean has committed to Connacht Rugby for another two years. Sean is a local boy, from a local club (Galwegians) and we are thrilled to see the way he has progressed through our academy and into our senior professional side. I have no doubt Sean will continue to sustain that level of progress in the years ahead with Connacht Rugby”.

Sean O’Brien added: “I’m absolutely delighted to extend my contract with my home province. In the coming two years I hope to represent the people and the club of Connacht with pride. I’m very grateful for the opportunity and hope to fulfil my personal ambitions and bring further success to the club.”
