You are requested NOT to bring any flares or smokebombs to the match. These items pose a serious hazard to you and those around you and are banned from the ground.

There are serious consequences for both you and the Club if such items are found or used. The Club will face a significant fine from the IRFU and you face arrest.

There will be both Garda and Fire Service present around the ground on the day conducting checks. If you are found to have these items you will be removed by the Gardai.

Security staff will be patrolling the ground and the Aviva Stadium Video Surveillance System will be in operation to identify anyone in possession of or engaged in the use of flares and/or smokebombs. You will be removed from the ground and presented to An Garda Siochana.

If you are found in possession of Flares or Smokebombs, you face having a criminal conviction on record so DO NOT bring any flares or smokebombs to the match.

Igniting flares in Club is also prohibited!

Be smart, enjoy the day and leave the flares and smokebombs at home. Don’t ruin Cup Final day for yourself or others over this!

FANZONE – The Lansdowne Hotel from NOON on Sunday
Before the match, The Lansdowne Hotel have very graciously offered to host a fanzone for all the Terenure tribe. There will be food available as they lay on a BBQ and the bar will will be open too.

So make your way there anytime from midday to soak up the atmosphere, get some grub, a pint and also get a little up cup song practice in!

There will be burgers and hot dogs on the BBQ, just the thing to power you through the day.

Face Painting
We’ve done the legwork for you here on Amazon and found some Face Paint you can buy!
Just add Purple, White and Black to your order and then go crazy with it, when it arrives.
Just make sure and order it in time for the match!
