In Pics:  Departing Players

We take a look back at some of our departing players in action during their time with Munster and we hear from Quinlan, Buckley and Dowling as they bid farewell.

After six seasons with the province 30 year old Tony Buckley makes the move to Premiership side Sale Sharks this summer, we take a look back at some of his moments here.

Ian Dowling was forced to call it a day in April as a result of a hip injury sustained earlier in the season.  The 28 year old winger is now pursuing a degree in Physiotherapy.  View his gallery here.

And like Dowling another player forced to retire due to injury this season was Barry Murphy.  Check out some of his pictures here.

Paul Warwick makes the move to French side Stade Francais this summer after four seasons with the province.  Comfortable at full back or out-half the former Australian U21 and sevens player was just as adept in the centre.  Since joining Munster at the start of the 2007-08 season he scored 461 points.  View Warwick's gallery here.

Finally we take a look back at Alan Quinlan's reign in the Munster jersey, spanning 15 seasons and 212 caps we could have published several galleries but narrowed it down to this one here. 

Exclusive Video – Hear from Tony Buckley, Ian Dowling and Alan Quinlan as they say goodbye and thank supporters.  View here.
