The Grounds

     

Thomond Park

Thomond Park is a purpose-built rugby stadium that was completely redeveloped in 2008. The capacity currently stands at around 26, 000, making it the largest club rugby ground on the island of Ireland.

Two large covered stands dominate the ground (East and West), both of which offer standing areas at the front and seating to the rear. Behind each set of posts there are small terraced areas. The atmosphere at “Fortress Thomond” can be immense despite the open ends, particularly when “The Fields of Athenry” is belted out around the ground.

In terms of access there are two main aspects that strike you. The first is that it is easier to move around inside the stadium than it is outside it. The main entrance leads into the West Stand and this is where you will find the ticket collection point, not to mention the two main bars. Fans based in the East Stand and Terrace must go back out the main entrance to go down towards the City, a short walk of less than a minute. The North Terrace is easier as you can access from the main entrance and its at the back of the ground.

 

Musgrave Park

 Musgrave Park is the Cork home of Munster Rugby. The West Stand was demolished in 2011 and replaced with a temporary structure holding a seated capacity of 2900, increasing the stadium capacity from 8300 to 9251.

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
