Thomond Park Stadium has been voted the best rugby stadium in the world following a vote by Rugby supporters across the globe.
The stadium, with a capacity of just over 26,000 seats, topped the public vote on worldwide rugby blog Intheloose.com with a 90% satisfactory rating. This puts the stadium just ahead of Cardiff's Millennium Stadium and the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.
Thomond Park was rebuild back in 2008 and recently hosted the Ireland national team in a test match against Fiji in November 2012.
Manger of the stadium, John Cantwell, was delighted with the news. He said: "In terms of redevelopment the venue has retained everything it was meant to and probably more so in terms of atmosphere and reputation."
The stadium currently names Munster, Shannon, Bohemian and Limerick as its tenants, making in one of the busiest arenas in Europe.
