        If this was to happen you would only see games in 2/3 venues. Thomond and 1 other ground Is all that's needed for games. You wouldn't see games in several club grounds

          I know thats how they have done it heretofore - but why not change it a bit and use different grounds

            Because IRB are not going to do differently and we wouldn't have a say.
            It works better with 2 grounds sharing games. Competition gets bigger crowds for all games as a result. Games are all played on same day and that's not going to change so keep all games in the 1/2 grounds on each game day

              I would love to see the next WRWC in Limerick ... ideally using club grounds, but UL option fine too...

                Ironically, if there's one place that has two newly-refurbished grounds for 2018, with full facilities nearby, it's us.

                    Us as in Munster. The IRFU should be all over this in advance of the vote on 2023.

                      Given that the semi's & Finals day has sold out a 20K capacity stadium in Paris there could be potential in the IRFU & GAA pitching to use the gaelic Grounds for the finals if there was sufficient demand. The problem is that the French are pretty much the only nation that gets such numbers for their womens matches. They regularly sell out 15-25k stadia for their home 6 nations games, particularly against Ireland & england. I'd sincerely hope that the irish rugby public shows up in similar numbers if we were to host the womens RWC.

                            Ireland have been successful in their bid to host the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup.
                            In March, the IRFU announced it had submitted a bid to host the competition in August 2017 at locations in Dublin and Belfast.
                            The tournament pool stages will be held at University College Dublin before moving to Belfast for semi-finals and the final, which will be held at the Kingspan Stadium.
                            Commenting on the news, IRFU CEO Philip Browne said: "Interest and participation in women's rugby continues to grow and building on this momentum we believe Ireland can deliver the best Women's Rugby World Cup to-date.
                            "We hope that the growing interest in women's rugby in Ireland, world class facilities such as UCD, Queens University Sport, Kingspan Stadium and our internationally recognised reputation for being one of the world's most welcoming nations will make an exceptional event for the entire Island.”
                            World Rugby Chairman Bernard Lapasset said: “The awarding of Women’s Rugby World Cup 2017 to Ireland is great news for teams and fans as the sport continues to reach out and inspire new participants in our great game.
                            "I am sure that Dublin and Belfast will prove to be popular destinations.”
                            Ireland reached the semi-finals at last year’s World Cup in Paris, recording a first ever win over New Zealand along the way, before being beaten conclusively by eventual champions England.
                            Ireland have also won the Six Nations titles twice in recent years, taking the Grand Slam in 2013 before completing a remarkable double with their male counterparts earlier this year.

                              Delighted for the girls, but bad, bad form that there are no games to be held outside Dublin and Belfast.
