Ahead of Leinster's home fixture against Northampton in the Champions Cup, Tullamore Rugby Club have teamed up with Irish Rail to organise a first for the club(and for Irish Rail)... a direct train to Lansdowne Road.
Following the recent reopening of the Phoenix Park tunnel which connects Heuston to Connolly, it will now be possible for a train to travel directly from Tullamore, to the Dart station at Lansdowne Road.
Over 450 club members from Tullamore are expected to travel by train to the game, with a special mention to the recently formed Tullamore Tigers Disability Tag Rugby team who will take to the pitch at half-time in a special exhibition game.
It is rumored Santa might even make an appearance for the unique occasion.
Tickets for this maiden voyage are in high demand and it's hoped that it could become an annual tradition for the Midlands club.
Move over the Santa express and jump on board the Tullamore express!
Tickets will be available from the clubhouse on Saturday 26th November from 10:30 - 11:30am. (Prices include return train and match ticket)
Adults €30 Kids €15
The closing date for ticket appications is December 1st at noon.
