Leinster flanker Niall Ronan will move to Munster at the end of the current season.
The openside reflected: " Look, I can't say it was a hard decision to make. I had four enjoyable years with Leinster and was getting three or four starts each season.
"But, at the end of the day, I want to try progress my career so when the chance of playing with Munster came up I just couldn't turn it down.
"I know some of the lads, played with Barry Murphy and Eugene McGovern at Under 21s and with Stephen Keogh who's with Leinster now.
"So I think I know what they're about. They're good people and I'm really looking forward to the move to be honest. They're a passionate lot and they're passionate players and that's a big incentive," said Ronan.
"Then their fans are the best in the world and to play in front of them will be a privilege. Plus I worked with Declan Kidney when he was here and he would one of the reasons I signed."
