    Lansdowne Road, Ireland

    During our tour of the British Isles and Ireland, we had the opportunity to attend a match at Lansdowne Road, known to the common world as the home of Irish Rugby. A beautiful stadium rich in history, this was definitely my favorite part of our rugby tour.

    I would highly recommend that if you are around Lansdowne around the time of a match, please stop in and check it out!

    Our hotel was just a short walk from this famous football stadium and I was reliably informed that Ireland played Portugal here last week. The score was 1-0 to Ireland. Hooray! It's always nice when the home team win. Both rugby and football are played here.

    We, Spaniards are known around the world for our lack of skills in Rugby, so I didn’t pay much attention to this sport during my stay, although Rugby is probably the #1 sport in Ireland. Matches are followed with strong passion, especially when the National Selection plays for the biggest Rugby championship, the Six Nations tournament. (The other five nations are, fyi, England, Wales, Scotland, France and Italy).

    Ireland plays as local its matches in the Lansdowne Stadium.

    Ireland V Barbarians - Lomu the unstoppable!

    In Dublin parlance - Oyirland, Ingerland, Sco'land, Wadles and Deh French have been joined by anudder rugby kuntry for dee anniyal Foiv Nayshuns Toorneyment wheyer everrywun playz everrywun else wunce an' we all take turrens for deh howem matches.

    Roughly translated that means that you should coincide your Spring visit to Dublin, if you really want to see the town hop that is, for the years when we play host to the Scots and the Welsh (the English and French aren't as much craic and the Italians aren't even aware they're in the competition yet!).
