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.
