    Thought it might be a good idea to start a thread to follow some of the Irish players plying their trade outside of Ireland.

    Latest transfers news from Munster is Year 3 Academy hooker Eoghan Clarke is heading to Jersey Reds at the end of the season. Ex-Munster second row Sean O'Connor and TH prop Ciaran Parker signed for Jersey Reds at the end of last season also.

    JJ Hanrahan is also heading to Clermont on a 2 year deal while Darren Sweetnam is heading to La Rochelle until the end of the season as a Medical Joker.

    Here's a little list.

    If you have anything to add, post below.

    Hat tip to Teferi for formatting the list.

    Clarke must not have been rated.
    Oisin Heffernan recently signed with Northampton.
    McBurney with Edinburgh.
    Bill Johnson is signing with Ealing?
    Quite a few lads over in England.

    Obviously Zebo must be mentioned - looking like London Irish for him.

    Copeland is still with Soyaux Agouleme I presume?

    Donnacha Ryan was rumoured to be heading into the ProD2 too but nothing confirmed AFAIK

    Would you consider Parker an Irish player though considering he's English born and his first professional contract/caps were with Sale? I know he's IQ but played U20s for England.

    Also Steven McMahon and Eamonn Sheridan for Carcassonne in Pro D2
