    Bringing an infant to Thomond

    So, I've got it my head to bring my 10 week old son to Thomond for the Scarlets match. Was wondering if anyone knew would I need a car seat for the shuttle buses? Any loos at Thomond with a changing table? Would I get a jersey for him at the ground or should I go to the Munster store on O'Connell street? And anyone know of somewhere in Limerick I can buy him earmuffs?

    I would respectfully suggest that you reconsider.

      Yeah, Couple in front of me in the stands brought their newborn to a match before and they were gone before half time, Spoke to them afterwards and they were very clear, it was a mistake. If he won't settle quickly, he won't settle at all, Earmuffs won't help in the slightest. You'll be focussing on him and not the game and you will NOT enjoy it.
      Going in a shuttle bus will Compound the issue as you'll want to go home but will have to wait for the game to finish, all the while, more and more uncomfortable.

      It's your choice of course but I'd listen to Piquet.

        Hi,

        assuming you're a genuine poster, we're very friendly here, i'd take the above poster's advice and give it a miss, however if you do really want too then; forget about car seat for the bus, use a baby sling to cart junior around, much easier in the crowds etc, getting on and off buses. Earmuff's for a 10 week are specialist buys, if you haven't got them yet, unless there's somewhere online that'll do next day delivery, forget it. Jersey? get in advance, O'Connell street store closed for the last 2 years?, as a fan you probably should have know that.., Lifestyle stores is where it's at..
        Baby changing, disabled toilets are where you go, again as a parent of a young bambino, you should have known that already..

        Enjoy the game, pity Leinster v Treviso isn't on the box, isn't it?

            Very much a genuine post. Just have lived in the UK for the last years so lost touch with Limerick shops. And last time I was in Thomond, watching out for baby change facilities wasn't really on my mind!

            And since we're home and the Red Army is very much needed, thought we'd give it a go. It would be nice to be able to tell him later on he was at Thomond at 10 weeks old.

            The idea is both myself and my wife will have slings. One of us will take him out if he won't settle. Depending on the type of bus, the driver might not be allowed take us without him in a car seat, hence the question.

            Maybe we are nuts to be thinking of it but it's definitely out in a few months when he gets a bit older so a bit of now or never!

                We have the car over do that's no bother. Didn't realise you could park at LIT. I always parked at the Jetland. That sounds like the best plan!

                  It'll cost you 5 eurons to park in LIT but its worth every damn penny. Plus it leaves the option of you splitting up as a group if the game is going well but the chillun isnt ;)

                    I don't know.

                    If the crowd shows up as it is hoped they will this weekend the noise could be upsetting for a child, especially that young.

                    The Tannoys and pre match music is usually uncomfortably loud as is. (what was with that in Musgrave Pk last week - you couldn't even have a conversation before the game, awful).

                    I wouldn't to be honest.

                      Probably a bit too late now but best advice I got with newborns was

                      Make the house as noisy as possible. Use the washing machine , hover , radio etc as much as possible. Get him use to sleeping through noise.

                      Games are no bother then ....

                      You could give it a go for the next few days and see does it help.

                        St Munchins NS at the traffic lights by East Stand also provide carpark €10. V nice stewards and v convenient depending on where you are heading after the match.

                              You can get baby ear muffs on puddleducks.ie and they can send them express post if you contact them so if ordered today you would have them by Friday. I ordered mine for taking my baby to thomond park too. Hope this helps and you get all get to the game
