Meeting Point Details – Racing 92

Munster head to the idyllic surroundings of Paris for a crunch match with Racing 92 in the Champions Cup this Sunday.

It’s all on the line in Pool 4 with the hosts top on 17 points followed by us in second with 11. A win puts us in a fantastic position going into the final pool game with Ospreys at Thomond Park. It’s sure to be a massive battle.

Meeting Point

Our meeting point will be Corcorans Irish Pub, 110 Boulevard de Clichy, Paris. Map of the location of Corcoran’s Irish Pub can be found HERE.

They will have the following offers – open to anyone with Munster gear on them or production of a membership card.

• A french local Beer €6
• Strongbow/Magners Cider €6
• Guinness €6
• House Burger & chips €10
• Munster Grill €10
• Live DJ’s all weekend.

Getting to the Stadium

There is a comprehensive guide to getting to the stadium on the Racing website here.

Please note that due to strikes, there are disruptions to all public transport.

Luckily the Metro to the stadium (Ligne 1, yellow) is fully automated and is running normally. However other Metro and RER lines are not running at all or have a reduced service. ‬

Probably best to plan your route to the stadium now, leaving a lot of additional time for delays/non running services. If all else fails, walk to the nearest metro station on Ligne 1 and it should be plain sailing from there.
