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.

Six Nations:Can seven weeks equal five? (Tue, 21 Feb 2017)
