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 IRFU are happy that residents in the vicinity of the stadium need have no concerns regarding the removal of asbestos in the roof of the West Stand, which will be conducted in line with normal Health and Safety regulations.
Philip Browne, Chief Executive Officer, IRFU says: "The storyline regarding asbestos and the re-development of Lansdowne Road is totally misleading. The West Stand, in keeping with most development work in Ireland of this nature in the 1950s, does contain corrugated asbestos sheeting and it will be professionally dismantled and safely removed in line with normal Health and Safety regulations. Residents in the area need have no concerns, nor will there be disruption to the re-development timetable."
