The Kerry native has put pen-to-paper on a long-term deal, the Welsh side have confirmed.

He'll arrive from Clermont, where he has made 14 appearances this season.

"I'm delighted to be joining Dragons in the summer and to be moving to a region who I feel has massive potential for growth under the guidance of Dean Ryan," Hanrahan said.

"When I first spoke to Dean about the region and his vision I could instantly see and feel his passion.

"I'm excited to come to Dragons and contribute to helping the team as much as I can."

29-year-old Hanrahan, who has played for Ireland at under-20 level, says he hopes his experience will stand him in good stead.

"I know the United Rugby Championship competition very well through my time at Munster and it’s a league I’m looking forward to playing in again,"

"Being away for a year in France at ASM Clermont has been great for me to gain new experiences and has given me a brilliant opportunity to learn a lot.

"I have always had great ambitions as a player and if you look at the current Dragons squad it has a good mix of top-class players in the Welsh squad along with some exciting young talent.

"There's so much to look forward to over the next few years to come and seeing where we can get to."
