The Irish Rugby Supporters Club is delighted to announce that tickets for the GUINNESS Series 2013 will go on sale on ticketmaster.ie at 10am on Thursday, May 30.
The tests will take place in Tokyo on June 12th and 19th against a side they have never lost to in their three previous test matches.
Ireland have beaten Japan in two World Cups - 32-16 in Lansdowne Road in 1991 and 50-28 in Bloemfontein in 1995 - as well as a 78-9 win in a friendly in Lansdowne Road in 2000.
With a number of senior players likely to be touring with the British and Irish Lions, this tour seems sure to represent an opportunity for some of Ireland's 'rising sons'.
