...The scene at Lansdowne Road for last November's autumn international between Ireland and New Zealand...
Ireland will play their last three internationals at the old Lansdowne Road against South Africa, Australia and the Pacific Islands in November.
These will be the last games at Lansdowne before redevelopment commences in 2007, so it will be your last chance to bid farewell to the old Dublin 4 stadium.
The autumn internationals schedule is as follows:
IRELAND v SOUTH AFRICA, Saturday, November 11 (kick-off 5.00pm)
IRELAND v AUSTRALIA, Sunday, November 19 (kick-off 4.00pm)
IRELAND v PACIFIC ISLANDS, Sunday, November 26 (kick-off 2.45pm)
As there is also a football international - Republic of Ireland v San Marino (November 15) - to be accommodated during this run, there will be some temporary seating in place for the games.
...Supporters sing 'Ireland's Call' before March's win over Scotland at Lansdowne Road...
Tickets for South Africa and Pacific Islands will be linked; a person who wishes to purchase a ticket (stand, terrace or schools) for the South African game must purchase the same ticket for the Pacific Islands game; the Pacific Island tickets are at a reduced price. Tickets for Ireland v Australia are not linked to any game.
Tickets for the autumn internationals against South Africa, Australia and Pacific Islands will be firstly distributed through the provincial branches who will then distribute through the rugby clubs in Ireland. The visiting Unions will also receive an allocation of tickets for their own game which they will distribute directly to their supporters. Should any tickets be returned from the clubs they will be available on www.IrishRugby.ie through the Supporters Club. Please keep logged on for up to date information on availability of tickets.
