Stemming from the success of last year’s inaugural trip by train to Lansdowne Road, direct from Tullamore, the midlands club have chartered another train for this weekend’s crucial Champions Cup clash against Exeter Chiefs.

With over 450 club members eagerly anticipating the trip following Leinster’s win over Exeter on Sunday, it promises to be an action-packed day for all involved.

Just like last year, the club have secured tickets under the One Province initiative meaning kids can avail of match tickets for only €5.

Tullamore have a long-standing tradition of pre-Christmas trips to Aviva Stadium, with members from minis right through to their adult teams and coaches all getting in on the action down through the years.

While they normally used to travel to the Aviva or RDS by coach, more recently they have teamed up with Irish Rail to travel direct to Lansdowne Road. Clearly their maiden voyage last December to the Champions Cup match between Leinster and Northampton was a hit, with such strong numbers eager to be involved again this year.

One thing is for sure, everyone will be crossing their fingers that the weather heats up a bit before Saturday evening!

Clubs and schools from around Leinster can avail of the One Province ticketing initiative for every Leinster Rugby home match. Tickets are available for €5 for children with adults going free for every 10 sold.
