Andy Farrell has signed a two-year contract extension to remain as Ireland head coach until 2025.
The move was a swift one, with chiefs acting upon the nation's landmark series victory against the All-Blacks.

The former England international took the job in late 2019, having previously been part of Joe Schmidt's coaching team.
There were question marks about his suitability after the opening games in his tenure.
He was quick to abolish these, however, overseeing a Triple Crown success in the Six Nations earlier this year.
Ireland are now the number one ranked side in the world after that tremendous series win over New Zealand earlier this month.

"I am happy to extend my contract with Irish Rugby for a further two years," said Farrell.
"As a group, we have made it clear that we are building towards the 2023 Rugby World Cup, and we have taken some decent strides in that regard in recent months.
"Ahead of the tour to New Zealand, myself and David Nucifora looked at the opportunities and challenges facing the national squad after the tournament in France.
"I am excited about continuing to work with the group and with the next generation of Irish international players."
