Ireland fullback Keenan’s deal follows the news of his inclusion on the list of nominees for EPCR European Player of the Year. The 24-year-old has established himself at international level, starting all five of Ireland’s Six Nations games this year.
Conan has made nine appearances for Leinster this season, including the Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final win over Exeter Chiefs on Saturday, while fellow backrow Penny has scored nine tries in 11 games in the Pro 14 this season.
Leinster also confirmed that David Hawkshaw has signed his first senior contract. The 21-year-old made his first-team debut against Glasgow Warriors in the Pro 14 in November and has gone on to make six further senior appearances.
