From Patrickswell, Co Limerick, Conor came through the Munster Rugby Academy and his rise has been meteoric.  He completed his three years with the academy at the end  of season 10/11 and then secured a senior contract.

While in the Academy Conor made his Munster senior debut as a replacement against the Sale Sharks in the 2009 pre-season game in Musgrave Park.

Then his competitive debut included a very brief appearance as a blood replacement in Galway in the Magners League. His second outing in the Munster shirt was as a 78th minute replacement against the touring Australians in November 2010.

A year later he had established himself as first choice scrum half for Munster and for Ireland starting for the national side in the World Cup in New Zealand.

Since then he has become the regular starter in the Ireland number 9 shirt.

Murray's 2012/13 season ended with a Lions squad inclusion and he featured in seven of the touring games including two of the test games. 

Made an impressive start to the 2013/14 campaign but sustained medial ligament damage to his right knee against Perpignan in December, an injury that will keep him out of action for approximately six weeks.

In the same month, Murray signed a new two-year contract extension to keep him at the province until at least June 2016.

Returned to the side to earn his 50th Munster cap in the Heineken Cup win against Gloucester at Kingsholm in January 2014.

Started all five games in Ireland's successful 2014 Six Nations campaign. Was one of the side's stand-out performers throughout the Championship brilliantly setting up Andrew Trimble for a vital try in the win against France in Paris.
