    @@@@SPAN ="story">Hundreds of assets from the world's oldest international rugby stadium, Lansdowne Road, are to be sold by online auction.

    Following
    the approval of planning permission in March 2007 to build a new
    stadium on the site of Lansdowne Road, the Irish Rugby Football Union
    has announced that hundreds of items of memorabilia and stadium
    collectables will be sold between April 26th and 30th, 2007.

    The
    ground's rugby history spans nearly 130 years to the first
    international rugby match that took place there against England on 11th
    March 1878.

    During this time, the stadium has seen some
    memorable matches and events, culminating in the last international
    game against the Pacific Islands on 26th November 2006.

    The
    stadium has seen many changes during its life, with the completion of
    the Guinness East Stand the last major development to the ground.

    This
    will all change with the development of the new stadium on the site of
    Lansdowne Road at a cost of €365m which is due to be completed in 2009.

    However,
    before the old stadium is taken down, Irish rugby aficionados will have
    a chance to own a little piece of Irish rugby history. Items up for
    auction include the Irish Presidents seat, old style entry turnstiles,
    stadium seats from varied positions in the stadium, signed jerseys and
    memorabilia.

    Renowned auctioneers, Bache Treharne, have worked
    with the IRFU to prepare a selection of these items from the existing
    Stadium. The Online Auction is open to bids from 9am on Thursday, 26
    April with bidding closing on Monday, April30, 2007 at 1.00pm.@@@@/SPAN>

        How much for the War Memorials in Wanderers ? Prefer to put in a bid to drive the bulldozer through their Clubhouse.

          Not much of a sentimenatalist, there Chief?


          Has anyone ever been in the old Lansdowne Pavillion down the north end?


          Know where you're coing form re the Chaps HH but to be fair, it' is a great old edifice and is an integral part of LR as it stands.


          Apparently, there's a storage room under the n terrace full of memorabilia, I hope there will be a museum in the new place if it gets built but it looks like they're trying to shift a bit of this stuff in this auction.

            If they can find mugs to buy up old seats, turnstiles, signs,lumps of concrete, tufts of grass, last o'the choc-ices, etc., fine, sorry I didn't think of it.


            If there's genuinememorabilia worth putting in a museumI can't see the sense nor need in selling that stuff off.

              Whats the story with Wanderers by the way? Did I hear talk of going to the High Court to stall the redevelopment?

                Apparently Chief, Old Chapponians have gone to The High Court to halt demolition of what -to anyone else -is a run-down mock tudoresque English Pub, but to them is an architectural gem of a Clubhouse which cannot be touched. This has nothing, repeat nothing to do with rumours of w**kerers seeking an extra Corporate box at the re-developed stadium (should it ever come to pass).


                IRFU say the project will be delayed even further, well done The Chaps. Looking forward to your return to Division 2 already.

                  So how come the residents who objected got hammered for doing so, yet Wanderers stride onwards without so much as a hair out of place?

                      Are Latvians particularly adept at this type of thing OD?

                        No - but they're cheap and very focused on achieving their mission.
