Ticket & Matchday Information | Munster v Ulster

26th September 2018 By The Editor

Dave O'Callaghan on the charge against Ulster at Thomond Park last season.

Munster’s first Interpro clash of the season takes place on Saturday night in Thomond Park with Ulster visiting Limerick in the Guinness PRO14 at 7.35pm with tickets available.

Munster and Ulster have served up some classic encounters over the years and this week’s tie is set to be another cracker with Ulster the only unbeaten team in the PRO14.

Ulster have made a thrilling start to the season as the province claimed two last-gasp home victories over Scarlets and Edinburgh in the opening two weeks. A successful start to their tour of South Africa saw Ulster record a third win over the Southern Kings before they fought back to snatch a dramatic 39-39 draw with the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein last weekend.


Soloist Jean Wallace will lead the home crowd in a live performance of Stand Up and Fight before kick-off. The MRSC Guard of Honour will be present to welcome teams onto the pitch and our half-time mini rugby display will feature Cork Constitution v Garryowen and Cashel v Highfield.
