Dylan Tierney-Martin signs three-year contract extension with Connacht

Connacht have continued to build for the future with a three-year contract extension for Galway native Dylan Tierney-Martin.

Tierney-Martin made his debut in March 2021 against Scarlets and has made 15 appearances for his home province. The hooker came through the ranks at The Bish and Corinthians RFC, and was the top try-scorer for Ireland in the 2019 Under 20 Six Nations, helping them to win a Grand Slam.

On signing the contract extension, he said: “It was a no-brainer for me to sign on for three more years so I’m delighted to be staying on. It’ll be an exciting three years for everyone at the club and I can’t wait to play my part in that.”

Andy Friend, Connacht director of rugby, added: “Dylan continues to grow his skill set that will allow him to become a top class hooker. As a province, Connacht have a huge focus on home grown players and are proud of those that come through the pathway system. Dylan is a prime example of that and I truly believe he has a very bright future ahead of him.”
