Munster Rugby have confirmed that out-half Ian Keatley has completed his time with the province, joining Declan Kidney’s London Irish for the remainder of the season.
The news comes after the recent Limerick Leader exclusive that Keatley will join Benetton Rugby at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old out-half joined Munster ahead of the 2011/12 campaign from Connacht. Having scored 1,247 points in his 180 Munster appearances, Keatley is second on the list of Munster’s all-time top points scorers, and joint-second in the current squad for appearances made in red.
Capped seven times by Ireland, Keatley is third on the list of all-time top points scorers in Guinness PRO14 (1,428 points) and fifth on the list of most games played (196 matches).
