So Long Lansdowne


Originally uploaded by DjMagra.

Yesterday’s Ireland V Scotland Rugby Match represented the final competetive rugby international that will be held in the oldest rugby stadium in the world before it is demolished and rebuilt as a shiny new 50,000 all seater stadium.

As someone who’s been going to games in Lansdowne for the past 10 years or so, I have to say, I won’t miss the old stadium, it really is such a poor show of a country that is doing so well economically, and really does stand up very poorly against the wonderful stadiums such as the Milennium Stadium or Stade de France.

Looking forward to being put up in Croke Park for the next few years as we’re awaiting the new stadium to be built.
