I know this isn't exactly under the heading of the forum, but doesn't seem to fit anywhere else:

www.connachtrugby.ie/2013100383520/conna...s-travel-partnership

From the website:

"packages include match ticket, transport to and from the game, pint of Heineken (over 18’s only) or bottle of mineral, Connacht Rugby flag and a meet and greet with Connacht Rugby player(s).

These packages are only available for groups of 30 people or more, no individual bookings can be taken. For more information or to book your package please call Farrell Travel on 091-844189 or e-mail info@farrelltravel.ie"> info@farrelltravel.ie

Package prices
Non inter-pro packages for groups of 30 + €27.50pp
Inter-pro packages for groups of 30 + €32.50pp
Heineken Cup packages for groups of 30 + €37.50pp"


Not a bad price if you were able to get a club or a decent gang together.

Also: It's been too long since I've read the word mineral, and now I want a can of club orange.

Sounds pretty good. It's basically only €5.50 above the online price.
The big catch is that if you already have a season ticket it's no good to you, so if you have 30 people but 10 of them have season tickets (or already bought tickets online), it won't work as you have to book the 30 as a package.
We should try and co-ordinate it via the website and see if we can get a few buses together from various locations for the Sarries game.

(And Sol_ie, while you're down the shop will you get me a bottle of Cadet Lemon and Lime?)

It seems to be between Connacht and Farrell Travel. By all means, if people want to co-ordinate here they should feel free, I don't know if we have dense enough pockets of Clanners outside of Galway but inside the province to fill a bus?

Would love to be proven wrong?

(Cadet? I never had that one. I do remember something called 'Bubble up'.)

Holy crap, they're still in business: www.gleesongroup.ie/brands/softdrinks/cadet.html

For H Cup games and interpros, I'd certainly hope we'd have more than 30 coming from a good few places. Is there already free travel for STHs from various places for some games? I know this used to be listed as a season ticket benefit but I know people were saying before it barely materialised. Did anyone here use it?

The problem would be getting it organised, as they don't sell individual seats, only group bookings, so there could easily be 30 people living close enough together saying feck it, I don't know 29 other people.

So I suppose if anyone on here would be interested in it, post your location and well see if we get enough from anywhere to make it work.
