Connacht announced on Tuesday that Sean Henry has signed a two-year contract with the province.

The Sligo-born hooker has been with Munster for the last three years.

Henry represented Connacht at Youths and Under-20 level before moving to Limerick. His performance in the No.2 jersey earned him a place in the Munster Academy in 2010.

He has impressed at British and Irish Cup level and was the starting hooker in the 2010 Final. He was also a member of the squad that captured the Cup title last season.

He earned his sixth cap for Munster during the 2013 opener earlier this month against Cardiff Blues.

Speaking on the recent signing, Connacht CEO Tom Sears said: "We are delighted to have been able to bring Sean back to his home province and have no doubt he will bring real quality to our squad and increase the competition for a place at hooker. He was very highly regarded at Munster and it is great news that he sees his future with Connacht."
