A summary of match day preparations for Munster’s Champions Cup Semi Final on Saturday, April 22nd. Join the #RedWave and get behind the Munster team in a huge weekend of knockout rugby!

As we start to gather momentum ahead of the upcoming #RedWave for Munster v Saracens in the Aviva this Saturday we have a quick run through of all the match day information so far for supporters here:


The MRSC were delighted to be able to offer a FREE bus service from each county in Munster for our members, thanks to the EPCR. The Limerick, Clare and Cork buses are fully booked with limited availability on our Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford buses – open for bookings up to 4pm today only (Thursday 20th April ) Full details on the buses, departure points, arrival point and more can be found here.


We are calling on all supporters to bring their flags with them to the stadium on Saturday. Although there will be a number of flags in situ within the stadium we are calling for your help in turning the Aviva Red so if you have any flags at home please bring them along and lets ensure that the Red Army turn out in full force.

Car Flags are gone from Thomond Park and Irish Independent Park but will be available at Bank of Ireland branches across Cork and Limerick and in the following towns on Friday:

Tipperary: Thurles, Nenagh, Clonmel
Kerry: Killarney, Tralee
Waterford: Waterford City, Dungarvan
Clare: Shannon, Ennis

Meeting Points and 'Red Mile'

The MRSC Buses will be dropping our members to Wanderers FC Rugby Club House on Merrion Road between 12:00 and 12:30, where food and drink facilities will be available to set supporters up for the day. There will also be limited car parking available at Wanderers FC, map to venue can be seen here.

At 1:00pm we will be marching en masse into Ballsbridge (10 min walk) where our #RedWave will merge with the larger sea of support at Paddy Cullens and Crowes pubs which, along with the Lansdowne and Sandymount Hotels, will be decked out in special Munster branding thanks to partner Guinness.

We also hope to form a Guard of Honour for the Munster team bus as it make to the Aviva to round off the Red Mile before completing the journey at the Aviva Stadium – further details on this to follow as we have them.

For anyone coming from Dublin City Centre, the MRSC Dublin venue – The River Bar, 1 Burgh Quay, will be welcoming all Munster Supporters travelling. This meeting point is ideal for those travelling to Dublin by train or bus and is in close proximity to the Tara Street Dart station for access to Lansdowne Road.
