Connacht v Leinster March 2016

Postby Donald » January 3rd, 2016, 10:11 pm

I know it's 3 months away but am looking to plan an overnight stay in Galway and also the game. Can anyone confirm this fixture date?

Thanks

Its scheduled for the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, so knowing our luck it'll probably be Good Friday!

If I'm not mistaken it's down for Easter weekend. Hopefully Good Friday night.

Really looking forward to this chaps. I haven't been to an away Leinster game in years and never even been to galway. It's the ground far from the square? Any rugby pubs that will host us for a few beers before hand?

A short 15 minute walk from Eyre Square will get you to the Sportsgrounds. O'Connell's on Eyre Square is my personal favourite. Gets a bit crowded on match days. Excellent Guinness.

The OLSC have arranged a supporters bus but I don't know if there's any seats left. If you email them at olsc@leinsterrugby.ie they'll be able to help

Yeah O'Connells do a decent range of Craft beers on tap too and a huge selection of whiskey in case drowning of sorrows is required.... 8-)

Anyone got a ticket?

Long shot but I have flight permission and an offer of a lift, but no ticket... Anyone got one up for grabs?
What we have here is a failure to communicate....
