"I had a fantastic time over in Munster - I loved every minute of it," he explained. "It was also great experience for me to be able to play in the Magners League and also the Heineken Cup. There was a special atmosphere at the club and playing for a region was very different from what I had been used to in a club environment.
"Everywhere you went people were interested in the team and what was happening and the players and supporters are a very proud bunch - they want to give everything for Munster. It's a really tight atmosphere and it was a special time for me - one I will always look back on fondly."
Now Kyriacou is back at Saracens and looking to cement a regular place in the matchday squad - starting when Saracens face Wasps in the opening game of the new Guinness Premiership season at Twickenham on Saturday 15th September.
"We've had a good summer and there is a really good atmosphere around the club," he explained. "We're all looking forward to the start of the season and also playing in the Heineken Cup. I had a taste of that last season at Munster and it was a fantastic competition for it will be great to be involved against.
"It's going to be a tough game on Friday night and Munster will go into the game on the back of a great result against the USA. They are missing a number of guys at the World Cup, but they are still a very good side and I'm sure a lot of the guys will be looking at this time of the year as a good opportunity to show what they can do and earn a first team spot.
"They are a tough and aggressive side and one thing you can be sure of is that they will be giving it everything. From our perspective, we'll be looking for a good performance to be ready for the start of the season next week, but facing Munster is a great way to warm-up for the Wasps game - I couldn't think of a better test."
