Connect with Munster RugbyJanuary 18th, 2009
You may recall before Christmas I helped raise â‚¬300 for charity at the Bloggers Christmas Dinner while raffling 2 VIP tickets to see Munster v Sale Sharks.Â Well the match was last night and I was at the match with the two winners & my Limerick based cousin Diarmuid O’Riordan.
The winners were Christine Coen & Keith Delahunty who are pictured with myself, Diarmuid and Louise from Toyota.
I managed to film a Munster try on my mobile, one of the 6 they score in a thrilling 37-14 victory over Sale Sharks team with some of Europe’s top rugby names playing on the night.Â However they were no match for Munster on a night where Paul O’Connell won Man of the Match.Â The fans were great and it is amazing what this small Irish provincial team has achieved both on and off the field.Â A highly coordinated real & virtual world community as you can see !
Picture below is Ronan O’Gara getting ready for a kick and it in mid air .. can you ‘Spot the Ball’ & win our special readers prize ?Â Answers on a postcard …
We also met up with Glyn Billinghurst who is the Sales & Marketing Manager of Munster Rugby (now that is what I call a job !!) who kindly showed us arond the corporate & hospitality sections.Â It is all spanking new and very impressive as was the stadium, the atmosphere, the performance and the total evening !Â Thanks to Toyota for a great night out !
