2 Munster established a 12-year unbeaten Heineken Cup run at the historic Limerick venue between 1995 and 2007. Leicester Tigers brought the Thomond Park streak to an end with a 13-6 pool stage victory in Round 6 in January 2007.
3 Since that defeat in 2007, Munster have lost twice in ERC competitions at Thomond. They were beaten 20-12 by Harlequins in the 2011 Amlin Challenge Cup semi-final, and Ulster were 22-16 winners in the 2012 Heineken Cup quarter-final.

4 In August 2013, Thomond Park was awarded the unofficial title of 'Best Rugby Stadium in the World' following a vote by rugby supporters around the globe.
5 Thomond Park staged one of Ireland's most celebrated matches of all-time when Munster defeated the All Blacks 12-0 in 1978. Before another big game against the All Blacks at Thomond Park in 2008, four Munster players - Doug Howlett, Lifeimi Mafi, Jeremy Manning and Rua Tipoki - famously challenged their countrymen by performing the Haka first.
6 The ground which was once a muddy field used to graze cattle in the off-season was redeveloped and reopened in 2008 as a new facility with a 26,600-capacity.
7 Munster supporters at Thomond Park are renowned for their strict adherence to the tradition of respecting the kicker of both the home and visiting clubs with complete silence while penalties and conversions are taken.
8 The four tenants of the stadium are Munster, Shannon RFC, UL Bohemian RFC and Limerick FC.
9 During Munster's 2006 Heineken Cup final against Biarritz, images were shown in the Millennium Stadium of thousands of Munster fans in Limerick's O'Connell Street cheering on their team as they watched the game on a big screen. The Munster players later said that the images of their supporters were a massive boost as they held out for a first European victory.
10 On big Heineken Cup match days, Thomond Park echoes to the sounds of two great Munster anthems: The Fields of Athenry (written by Pete St John) and Stand Up and Fight (from the Broadway musical Carmen Jones).
Stand Up and Fight chorus
Stand Up and Fight,
Until you hear the bell,
Stand toe to toe,
Trade blow for blow,
Keep punching 'til you make your punches tell,
Show that crowd what you know,
Until you hear that bell,
That final bell,
Stand Up and Fight like hell.
