Ireland Women's Sevens head coach Jon Skurr has announced a 12-woman squad for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow (June 29-30).
The redeveloped Donnybrook will include a new main stand, with an increased seating capacity of 2,500, additional concrete terracing on the north-west, north-east and south-east sides of the main pitch, 76 apartments at the Bective end of the ground, along with a new, three-storey clubhouse on the River Dodder side that will include a gym, offices, kitchens, a bar and a television and media press box along with corporate facilities.
There will also be a creche, six tennis courts, a scrummage area and a river walkway linking Anglesea Bridge with Herbert Park, while there are also plans for high-rise apartments at the Wesley end of the ground. There are also provisions in the plans for back pitch floodlighting, cycle parking and 116 car-parking spaces.
IrishRugby.ie hope to bring you further photos of Donnybrook as the redevelopment process progresses over the summer months.
