They own 50% of New Stadium Limited. NSL’s lease at Lansdowne Road runs out. Obviously they have full use of the stadium during it’s useful life, it’s not a bad deal for the FAI at all and they will likely be partners with the IRFU there for however long they want. I just think it’s important to point out to @dodgy_keeper that;
- Irish soccer would have had nowhere to play if it wasn’t for the IRFU being sound for years, and to this day the still play on IRFU lands. Realistically the Leinster deal is a great one for them - they have a sufficiently sized stadium in a good location for Dublin and the ground is being done up for them. Unlike Munster Rugby, they didn’t get into crap over theirs
- and as have been pointed out above, for all his laughter at Munster Rugby (and I laugh at them too), Limerick GGA were in as much financial shite as MR
Let’s not get started on his true love Manchester United’s debt issues.
