Ireland hooker Sean Cronin has signed a two-year deal with Leinster.

The 24-year-old will sever ties with Connacht at the end of the season, having moved to Galway from Shannon in 2008.

A product of the Munster academy, Cronin has played seven Tests for Ireland since making his debut against Fiji in November 2009.

"The province's ambitions mirror my own," he said. "Hopefully I can establish myself in the squad when I join up in a few months time.

"I am grateful for the opportunity that Connacht have given me over the last three years to play for a fantastic club. They will continue to grow from strength to strength under Eric Elwood."
