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.

Named Munster Rugby Player of the Year at the 2014 Munster Rugby Awards

Included in the Ireland squad for summer tour to Argentina, 2014.

Featured for Ireland in the Guinness Series victories over South Africa and Australia in November 2014 

Started every game for Ireland in the successful defence of their 6 Nations title in 2015 and was later nominated for the IRUPA Player's Player of the Year, losing out to his Munster colleague Paul O'Connell.

Featured in every game for Ireland at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, also starting every game of the 2016 RBS 6 Nations.

Signed a three-year contract in January which will see him remain at Munster through to the end of Rugby World Cup 2019.

Featured in Ireland’s first ever win over the Springboks on South African soil in June 2016.
