Kearney helped Leinster to the Guinness Pro14 title on Saturday and will look forward to playing on with the province next season after the World Cup.
The Louth man had been absent from a list of new player contracts issued by Leinster last week, adding to doubts about his future amid links with a move to a French club next season.
