On completing his second year at the Munster Academy, Sherry secured a senior contract for season 2011/12.
He made his Magners League debut as a replacement against Connacht at Thomond Park in December 2009.
Was drafted into the Ireland World Cup 2011 squad as an injury call up and was included in the Ireland squad for the three Test June 2012 trip to New Zealand.

Sherry enjoyed a productive first half of the 2013/14 season and featured in 10 games for Munster.
The Irish international ruptured the cruciate ligament in his left knee at the end of November in the game against Newport Gwent Dragons and is expected to be out for six months. While side-lined Sherry underwent shoulder surgery in January.
Continued to integrate back into full 2014/15 pre-season training, however following a routine check-up on his shoulder another issue was identified with the Limerick-man undergoing a second shoulder surgery in August.
Despite an intensive four month period of rehabilitation he experienced persistent symptoms that prevented him from progressing through the relevant phases of his return to play protocol and underwent a third surgery early in December 2014 ruling him out for remainder of the season.
