    Munster Rugby Brand - Tourism

    What are people opinions on Munster Rugby being used time and again by, in particular, Limerick County Council and Limerick Tourism as some sort of brand to bring said tourism into the City?
    Personally, outside of match days, I doubt Munster Rugby has ever brought more than a handful if even, of tourists to the City
    I think our reach is totally over blown, but worse, completely misunderstood by such organisations

    Just wait for the thousands who’ll descend on the Limerick Rugby Museum once it’s opened

      Would have thought it hugely adds to name recognition of Limerick- and it would be crazy of the council etc not to make use of it- as a cork man I wish we had the 25k stadium and all the high profile games- but happy to make the trip when I can, and on European days you can tell talking to the away fans that it’s like a bucket list thing. I realise your point is beyond rugby- but you have to build from some position- and there aren’t better foundations for that than Munster Rugby...

          I'm all for promoting the city and getting tourists in, one only has to go to on to the streets of Dublin, Cork, Galway, Belfast to see how so little tourists actually visit Limerick city. There isn't even a backpacker hostel?? maybe a city centre modern attraction will help, but the Frank McCourt museum is selling off stuff to survive, the Hunt Museum relies on local schools to keep it going, King John's castle is just ticking over, if that... not sure critical mass is there

            Limerick has a huge amount to offer for tourists. For too long the Tourist sales pitch has been to diddly-ie Americans in green trousers and Aran jumpers.

            The world has moved on and tourism marketing needs to also. I've traveled in over 50 countries since I left Limerick and while I couldn't wait to get away when I was a teenager I can say now that Limerick City and county has an enviable list of sights worth seeing. Rugby history and outdoor activities should be part of that. Very few people travel just to see one thing they want to have a mix of things to see and do over a few days.

                If Munster/ Lifestyle Sports had any cop on they'd open a store right next to the Limerick Rugby Museum. The old Munster shop on O'Connell Street was great as you could buy everything Munster and for rugby in general.

                  They already have a large store 200m away on William St which doesn't have any issues selling Munster gear. That plus there aren't any suitable premises for a Lifestyle store 'next door'.

                    I don’t known where I thought the museum was going but I didn’t think it was there, my geography was off.

                        Maybe we should target South Africans. They seem to like Limerick :)
