More About Ireland Rugby Union - With Roots in Ancient Traditions
With 15 players on the pitch, there is no denying that rugby union is a team sport, but in recent years no player has been
more influential to the Ireland Rugby Union squad then Brian O'Driscoll. Considered one of the best players in the world,
he was the man behind the Six Nations win in 2009 that helped restore Ireland's glory.
Ireland has competed in all Rugby World Cup
tournaments since 1987, reaching the quarter final stage in all but two competitions. Similar to the ancient Irish sport Caid,
rugby union has been played in Ireland since the 19th century with the Ireland Rugby Union team forming in 1874. Playing their
first international match against England in 1874, the home ground for rugby union in Ireland is the Aviva Stadium, which also hosts football matches and high profile concerts.
