8 of us booked into the shed.

I never been here before.
Will it be like the clan and need to be there early to get a good spot?

Maybe they will put out a second team after loosing 2 games

In Gloucester early Sat so will find a watering hole and warn the locals about the impending invasion.
A right crowd heading over it seems so will be good fun in the shed once we get in early

If you're in the Shed get a "Spot" early and stay put. If ale is on your mind and there are a few of you nominate a relay runner who will get the pints in and there by no one will loose The Spot. The locals get in early but are goig craic.


Going to the Sportsgrounds is a bit like Mass:You stay until the players are off the pitch and never leave early!

We're on the 12.30 Ryanair flight from Dublin to Bristol on Saturday. We've a car rented and will be driving straight to Gloucester - there are two free seats going if anyone is on the same flight and hasn't sorted transport yet.

Heading down from the Surrey Hood on Sunday morning, heading for the Shed.

Trains due in about 11:30 so will be headed for Teague's or direct into ground depending on actual timings and size of crowd at ground when I get to Teague's.

Disappointing result

But can I just say thanks to the 80-100+ supporters around me in the shed the noise they made was great! Never stopped singing, cheering, and supporting the team. Just shows wheat we can do when we all stand together!

Also Rotorbike whose daughter I gave my bodhrán too, 1 she was great always getting us going, and 2 if she ever wants it at a game I'm at let me know!

I have no voice today but it was worth it and ye all deserve recognition for traveling!

I must agree with the support, it was one of the best away games i was ever at, it felt like the clan stand.
I had a brilliant time. The Gloucester fans were the best I have ever met. So friendly and welcoming. The town was very quiet but I would go again in a heartbeat

Yeah, a big shout out to all of the travelling Clan. I was in Gloucester on Sunday evening and met many of you in the streets by the Kingsholm, in Teague's and a few of the other watering holes. Everyone to a man and woman were in good spirits (despite the result) and were a credit to your club and county.

We even manged to sign up a few Connacht fans to the Play Away, Stay Away community as hosts and a massive shout out to them for putting Galway on the Play Away, Stay Away map! If you're looking to stay with friendly, local, verified hosts in any of your future away games, check it out and turn a fan into a friend.
