Connacht have followed up the signing of Jason Harris-Wright with the capture of Brian Murphy from Galwegians.
The 26-year-old has earned his first professional contract after a stellar campaign in the Ulster Bank All Ireland League.
Murphy, who can play at full-back or in the centres, was voted as the iRadio Senior Club Player of the Year at the recent Connacht Annual Awards.
He previously came through the youth set-up at Connacht, playing for the Under-21s before dropping into the All Ireland Leagues.
