London Irish and Munster announced today (Friday August 2nd) that Eddie Halvey is rejoining the province with immediate effect.

The former Irish international back row forward has signed a contract with Munster that will effectively see him finishing his career in his native country. Given the circumstances, London Irish agreed to Halvey's early release from the final season of his contract.

Halvey (32) joined London Irish in July 2000 and has since made 48 appearances scoring nine tries. He played a key role in the squad that won the powergen cup last season. Eddie made his last appearance for Munster in the Heineken Cup final against Northampton in 2000. And he now joins the Munster squad along with former Northampton scrum half Dominic Malone.

Commenting on the announcement Conor O'Shea, the London Irish Director Of Rugby said "We are sorry to lose Eddie, he has made a great contribution to the club both on and off the pitch. Given the opportunity that has arisen for Eddie it would be wrong for us to stand in the way of his wishes. We thank him for his service and wish him well in continuing his playing career with Munster."

Munster team manager Jerry Holland said "Eddie is a quality player. He is well known to Munster supporters and I am sure that they will join with me in welcoming him back into the Munster squad. He is a versatile player whose presence will make the competition for a place in the forwards all the keener."

WELCOME BACK EDDIE!
