Eating and Drinking        There are a number of stalls selling food in the RDS but even the club's own website admits these can be expensive. It does recommend Eddie Rockets and the Bagel Factory.

There are a number of bars inside the ground, although these do not provide a great deal of protection from the elements. Therefore, most fans tend to drink in one of the nearby pubs prior to kick-off.

 

www.leinsterfans.com is an excellent guide to the area.

               

Where to Eat and Drink

Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd?
