At the Guinness PRO14 game between Leinster Rugby and Ulster Rugby on Saturday, 6th January 2018 in the RDS Arena there was an issue with the flooring in a single isolated row of seats at the back of Block L in the Grandstand.

As a result, up to 12 patrons were moved from their seats and the area was shut down by members of An Garda Síochána and Sword Security.

There were no injuries reported at the time and a formal investigation is now underway by the RDS in conjunction with their event safety management contractors Eamon O’Boyle & Associates.
