Fans of the 2006 Heineken Cup champions Munster will have a unique opportunity to create their own piece of history with a new initiative launched at the New Limerick Rugby Stadium currently under development.
A new walkway in-front of the East Stand of the stadium, where Munster have played their Heineken Cup matches since 1998, will be paved with bricks engraved with personal messages from Munster supporters and players. It will be known as 'The Munster Walk, An Cosan Muimhneach'.
Munster have the second highest number of Heineken Cup appearances in the tournament's history having played 86 games in 13 seasons and their famous stadium is being redeveloped to become a 28,000 stat of the art facility.
Munster Rugby's Sales & Marketing Manager Glyn Billinghurst explained 'The Munster Walk has been created to give supporters their opportunity to create their own piece of history in the New Limerick Rugby Stadium. Supporters can purchase a personalised engraved brick that will form the part of the entrance to the East Stand - we believe "The Munster Walk' will make a very attractive feature of the approach to the stadium.'
He added 'We have had extremely positive feedback from a number of people about this and already a wide variety of messages have already been received for engraving. People are anxious to record their attendance at certain games like the All Blacks in 1978 or the 'Miracle Match' against Gloucester in the Heineken Cup while others have simply listed family members' names to appear on The Munster Walk".
Paul O'Connell, the Munster Captain, commenting on the activity added "The Munster Walk certainly looks like a very interesting initiative and one I believe that deserves a lot of support from Munster people"
