Answer Irelands Call - Travel by Train to Aviva Stadium

The Irish rugby team kick off their Guinness 6 Nations campaign on the 2nd February in the Aviva stadium against England. With three away games this season Ireland's only other game at home is against the French on the 10th March.

Ireland are the defending champions and they will have to raise their game this year to defend their Six Nations crown. In a World Cup year as well, players will  be out to impress with the aim of making the plane to Japan in the autumn.

Ireland find themselves now with strength in depth and if one player is injured there are talented players pushing to get their hands on the jersey. Rory Scannell, Dan Leavy, Jacob Stockdale and the explosive Bundee Aki all forced their way into the national team over recent years. Jordan Larmour, Tadgh Beirne, John Cooney, and others will all be pushing the first team players hard this season.

Ireland had a strong finish to 2018 with the great win over the All Blacks and suffered only one defeat in 12 test matches which came against Australia in Brisbane. With coach Joe Schmidt retiring after the World Cup, the team will want to finish Joe's last Six Nations campaign on a high.

Aviva Stadium

The easiest way to travel directly to the ground is to take the DART. The line actually runs under the West stand of the stadium and stops at Lansdowne Road Station.

Extra DART capacity will be added before and after each game for supporters going to the games.
