    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                Can’t see any problem with this, not as if they locals would object, no form at all in complaints about development in the area at all

                  “Munster Rugby, famous for their feats on the grass of Thomond Park have no involvement in the project, but could benefit from its development.”
                  seems strange given that it is the Munster/Thomond Park brand which would leverage from.

                    If MR have nothing to do with it, then how are the stadium bosses, who work for MR and the IRFU confident of raising the finance? And the drawing clearly shows a bridge going from one of the proposed buildings to the East Stand, so they have to be involved in some way.

                      Now that's a Strategic Plan - Great news for Limerick and a huge positive spin off for Munster Rugby.

                        It's not explained very well in the article. They cite Thomond Park Stadium, which I'd imagine is the Limited company linked to the initial development and operating the events/commercial elements. Would make sense that those operations were hived off into a standalone vehicle, and probably makes sense for whatever funding pot is being accessed by the Council that they are the entity cited.

                        There's not much info about Thomond Park Stadium from a quick google, but I'd assume that the IRFU are the shareholder? Or maybe Munster Rugby?

                        John Cantwell is listed as a contact on one site for Thomond Park Stadium, and would very much appear a Munster Rugby employee from the outside.

                          AFAIK the stadium is 50% owned by the Munster Branch and 50% by the the IRFU.

                            Would be incredible but unfortunately there's a few serial objectors in that area. They objected to LED signs being erected a couple of years ago, a 5k indoor arena, hotel and car park are sure hardly going to get through. I hope they do though.

                              I am doubtful about this. Other than Munster Rugby Thomond Park has been a flop for Non Munster events. World Club Sevens, Soccer and very few concerts.

                              From a Sports point of view i cant see much demand for a 5,000 seat arena. Maybe for Concerts in the Winter Months.
