It has been a busy month for the academy with players involved with the Irish Under-20s, Munster A and their club sides.
A training contract was offered in an effort to include Declan in training with the senior team in a professional environment for the season.
This is not the first time Munster have offered such a contract, Conan Doyle and Tom Gleeson both received same in previous seasons.
Munster Rugby manager Shaun Payne looked at the offer as "giving a young lad an opportunity and seeing how it develops".
Declan featured in the number 10 jersey recently for Munster A against Ulster A.
