There’s fuck all in Limerick city for tourists, it’s likely that they’ll flock to this place if it’s well kitted out,
Limerick in general cares about rugby, don’t ask me why, a city centre attraction sounds great for town though


#3818

I’ve no issue with the museum itself ---- I’d love to see the breakdown of tourists that pass through Limerick that come from rubby playing countries tho— Mostly yanks, Germans, Spanish, French, Italians and tans …

Let’s hope they do a really good job that will have neutrals flocking to it as I doubt too many tourists will be coming especially for it.

What’s needed is a motorway between Limerick and Cork.


#3819

Tourists will go anywhere that their told to, especially when there’s not much else to do, I once gave a full day to the national museum of Laos in Vientaine


#3820

They have the Castle, the Hunt and Limerick Museum for that — Why would you go to a museum on a sport you’ve never heard of? Stop now.


#3821

Bells and whistles mate, you know better than that,
The places you mentioned are all terribly dull for the neutral


#3822

People travel for history - culture - food - and relaxation. Unless you’re a rubby enthusiast you wouldnt dream of going to a rubby museum. I wouldnt visit a GAA or scummy soccerball one - the idea of a ‘sports’ museum is bizarre and the idea of a niche sport’s museum is even more bizarre.

They seem to have toned it down a lot. I like they way they have a car just parked up on the road illegally in the photo. Makes it much more realistic

Big difference between that and the original


#3824

And you’ve a few lads here saying we didnt win :fu:


#3825

If it wasn’t for rugby during the depths of the recession limerick city was utterly fucked.


#3826

The rivalry with Leinster alone was worth 10m to the city every time they visited…


#3827

I think this could be as big for Limerick as Celtworld was for Tramore.


#3828

Massive backtrack by the rubby men.


#3829

Man you just unlocked a long lost childhood memory for me there, I had completely forgot about that place!


#3830

Not much difference now between this and the long-gone Munster Rugby store that was across the road. It might even last longer.


#3831

This will be a white elephant in about 10 years. A big come-down from the original application and a message to PJ that his money might buy him Limerick GAA but won’t buy everything.

Not the remotest fear of it a chara. Once a useless bastard always one.

Massive crowd here in the GG. There must be nearly 100 people there.
