Limerick Colours Match To Light Up Thomond Park

Limerick Colours Match To Light Up Thomond Park

Ul v LIT is a fixture that has become a main stay in the college rugby calendar since the first game in 1997. The John O’Brien memorial trophy is the prize that awaits the victors with UL hoping to lift the trophy for the third year in-a-row.

This year the UL v LIT fixture returns to Thomond Park after an absence of three years due to the redevelopment of the stadium.

Both colleges are excited by the generous offer of Thomond Park to open its gates for what should be a great game of colleges rugby.
