As an academy member he first played for the Munster senior side against La Rochelle in the opening pre-season game in August 2011.

In June 2012 he played an impressive role at out-half for the Ireland Under 20 side that finished 5th in the Junior World Cup in South Africa and was nominated for Junior Player of the Year.

He then made his RaboDirect PRO12 debut against Newport Gwent Dragons in Thomond Park in September 2012, and as the youngest member of the squad was named in Munster's 38 man Heineken Cup squad for the season, going on to make his Cup debut as a replacement against Edinburgh in October at Thomond Park.

He makes the move to a full senior contract at the start of the 2013/14 season for two seasons.

Hanrahan was part of the Munster A team that won the British and Irish Cup title in May 2012.  From Castleisland in Co Kerry, he played his schools rugby with Rockwell College and plays his club rugby with UL Bohemians.

Has impressed so far this season with man of the match performances against Zebre and Glasgow Warriors, also scored a crucial try late on away to Perpignan to win the game for Munster.

Kicked 10 out of 10 as Munster had their biggest win of the season in February as Cardiff Blues were dispatched on a 54-13 scoreline.
