Munster set up an all-Irish Celtic Cup semi-final against Leinster next weekend by fighting back to beat Edinburgh at Thomond Park.
Munster (7) 24
Tries: Quinlan, Horgan, Foley
Cons: Burke (3)
Edinburgh (14) 14
Tries: Laney, Hall
Cons: Paterson (2)
A surprise appeared on the cards in the first half with tries from Brendan Laney and Dougie Hall helping Edinburgh to a 14-7 interval lead.
However, Anthony Horgan's touchdown helped put Munster in front and Anthony Foley's late try made the game safe.
Anthony Quinlan notched Munster's other try early in the first half.
The province started with 14 Irish internationals but Edinburgh tried their utmost to spoil coach Alan Gaffney's send-off from Thomond Park.
Lock Nathan Hines' sin-binning did dent the Edinburgh challenge in first half injury-time, and the Gunners duly succumbed on the back of a scoreless second half.
Lions lock Paul O'Connell ducked inside the tackle of Marcus Di Rollo to send Quinlan stepping through for Munster's 13th-minute opener.
Burke chipped the conversion over but two penalty misses from the fly-half allowed Edinburgh to mount a comeback.
From a broken down Munster attack, Laney picked up and dummied twice past David Wallace and Horgan to touch down between the posts.
Hall's 32nd-minute effort - only his second of the season - was then converted by Scotland player of the year Chris Paterson for a 14-7 lead.
Four minutes after the restart, Burke clipped over his first penalty before winger Horgan - set up by Shaun Payne's initial incision - went over to put Munster 17-14 in front.
Both Burke and Donncha O'Callaghan had try-scoring chances to add to Munster's tally, but it took Foley to barge over to confirm an all-Irish semi-final and his side's 10 straight win at Thomond Park.
The semi-final takes place at Lansdowne Road next Sunday.
