Ulster 7 - 9 Munster: Nail-biting finish as Ulstermen let win slip away at Kingspan
Ulster lost a league game at home for the first time since May 2014 as Munster edged a close derby by a score of 9-7.
Visiting out-half Ian Keatley kicked all of his side's points with a penalty in the 61st minute proving decisive.
Les Kiss's men, who scored the only try of the game through Louis Ludik in the first-half, had a chance to snatch victory but Paddy Jackson's penalty attempt in the 78th minute fell considerably short.
The hosts, who had won four in a row entering the contest, will now head into a trio of crucial European clashes on the back of a defeat.
