Match Day at Thomond Park

Munster vs Clermont Auvergne
Kick off: 3.30pm

Its Match day again at Thomond Park and Gardai are advising anyone going to the Munster Vs Clermont Heineken cup pool one clash this evening to allow time for their journey and arrive at the stadium early.

A special shuttle bus service is operating to Thomond Park from Henry Street in the city center, beside Dunnes Stores. We’re not sure of the exact times of this service however.

Gardai are advising people to not park on any public green area around the stadium.

Match traffic combined with increased traffic levels due to it being a Christmas shopping Saturday makes for a busy and hectic day in the city.

Munster: 15 Keith Earls, 14 Doug Howlett, 13 Barry Murphy, 12 Lifeimi Mafi, 11 Ian Dowling, 10 Ronan O'Gara, 9 Tomas O'Leary, 8 David Wallace, 7 Niall Ronan, 6 Alan Quinlan, 5 Paul O'Connell, 4 Donncha O'Callaghan, 3 John Hayes, 2 Frankie Sheahan, 1 Marcus Horan.
