We're ready to create something legendary. A showcase for rugby nations old and new. A tournament that will grow the game globally, promote the values, spirit and ethos of rugby and will capture the world's imagination. #Ireland2023 - Liam Neeson gives voice to Ireland's bid to host Rugby World Cup 2023.
Irish Rugby TV has signed Alan Quinlan for the 2013 RBS 6 Nations. In his first interview he speaks to Simon Zebo at the Ireland squad media day in Carton House about the upcoming match with Wales, keeping his feet on the ground and his famous try-scoring celebrations.
IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne speaks out against Minister for Communications Eamon Ryan's 'free-to-air' proposals at a specially arranged press conference, with ERC Chief Executive Derek McGrath and Six Nations Chief Executive John Feehan also at the top table.
Just sent my email protesting the Minister's proposal. Best of luck with the campaign, let's hope we can get people rallying together on this!!

The Minister's proposal would result in the loss of between
in annual revenue to the IRFU
This represents between
of the annual budget and is the equivalent of the entire annual budget for domestic/club rugby
The loss of this income would mean that, unlike what has driven our success in the last 10 years, the IRFU could not offer competitive remuneration to our best players and they would most likely move overseas
