Jack Carty has signed a two year extension to his contract that will see him return to the Sportsground until the end of the 2020/2021 season.
The out half from Roscommon has deep roots with rugby in the province, coming up through Connacht’s underage structures.
He represented the Buccaneers and Marist College before joining the Connacht Academy.
Since making his debut as an academy player in September 2012, Carty has represented his home province 118 times.
This season alone he’s made twelve appearances in the PRO14 and scored 109 points, the second highest of anyone in the competition.
At international level he has represented Ireland at Under-20 level and played in the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship.
Commenting on the signing, Head Coach of Connacht Rugby, Andy Friend said: “We are delighted to announce that Jack Carty has signed a two year contract extension to take him up to the end of the 2020/21 season.”
“Jack is a product of the outstanding work being done at club and schools’ level throughout the province and within the Connacht Academy,” said Friend.
“He is an example of what our Grassroots to Green Shirts Vision represents. He will continue to be an important player for the province in the seasons ahead.”
Jack Carty added: “I am hugely proud that as a Connacht man I have come through the grassroots structures in the province and gone on to play professional rugby.”
“I have a great support network in rugby and away from the game and I am very grateful for the guidance they show me.”
“Connacht is an exciting place to be at the moment both on and off the field and we are extremely ambitious about what we can achieve in the coming seasons. I look forward to contributing to those plans,” Carty finished
