IRFU To Showcase Club Game With Aviva Stadium Fixture

The IRFU have confirmed the venues for a host of international representative games during the 2014/15 season, including the Ireland Wolfhounds, Ireland Under-20s and Ireland Women’s team.

In a move aimed at showcasing the talent of the Ulster Bank League, the Club International fixture against their French counterparts will be played at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, February 14, following the RBS 6 Nations game between Ireland and France.

The confirmation of the Ulster Bank Club International fixture at the Aviva Stadium follows the announcement that the Ulster Bank League Division 1A final will also take place at the home of Irish Rugby on May 9, 2015.
IRFU President Louis Magee commented: “Having the Club International against France follow the RBS 6 Nations senior international at the Aviva Stadium is an incredible platform to showcase the talent in our club game.

“The amateur game is the bedrock of our sport and it is fitting that this opportunity is utilised to show how vibrant and exciting club rugby is in Ireland.
“I am delighted that in the 2014/15 season we have two high profile opportunities to celebrate and promote the club game.”

The international between Ireland Wolfhounds, sponsored by Three, and England Saxons will take place at Irish Independent Park (formerly Musgrave Park) on Friday, January 30, 2015.

The Ireland Under-20s, sponsored by PwC, will play their opening home Six Nations fixture against their French counterparts at Dubarry Park, Athlone on Friday, February 13, 2015 and move to Donnybrook for their second home match against England on Friday, February 27, 2015.

The Ireland Women’s team, sponsored by AON, will play both of their Six Nations home games at ‘Fortress Ashbourne’ where they have recorded many famous victories over the years.

Fellow semi-finalists at the recent IRB Women’s Rugby World Cup, France, and World champions England will visit Ashbourne RFC in Meath this season – on Friday, February 13 and Friday, February 27 respectively.
