Munster Rugby can confirm that Neil Cronin, Colm Hogan and Andrew O’Mahony have completed their time at the province.

Scrum-half Neil Cronin scored two tries in 39 Munster appearances since making his debut as a non-contracted player against Leinster in December 2014.

He signed his first contract in 2018 after a number of impressive seasons with Garryowen in the All Ireland League.

A strong start to his first season as a member of the senior squad saw Neily score one try in 11 appearances, including a Champions Cup debut away to Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park.

He made a further eight appearances the following year but a long-term knee injury saw him miss almost the entire 2020/21 season.

Cronin bounced back to make 10 appearances in 2021/22 and over the last two seasons has featured in both wins against South Africa A and Crusaders at SuperValu Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Back three player Colm Hogan departs after helping Munster to victories over Harlequins and Crusaders in February having joined on a short-term contract in November.

The 27-year-old has been starring for Garryowen since joining the province and is a former Glenstal Abbey student.

He previously captained Dublin University in the AIL, had a spell with Colomiers in the PRO D2 and lined out for Tasman Mako in the NPC earlier this year.

UCC scrum-half Andrew O’Mahony departs having completed his two-month contract with the province.

A former CBC student and Ireland U20 international, O’Mahony featured for Munster A against the Connacht Eagles at the start of the season.

Our thanks to Neily, Colm & Andrew for their contributions to Munster Rugby and we wish them all the best for the future.
