The IRFU has confirmed that next month’s autumn international against New Zealand at the Aviva Stadium has sold out.
Ireland will play three games in November, starting with Samoa on Saturday November 9th and Australia on the 16th before the visit of the world champions to Dublin on the Sunday 24th.
The popularity of the All Blacks was summed by a 40 per cent rise in sales through clubs from last year’s game against South Africa.
Tickets for the first two games are still on sale, starting from €35 for the Australia game and €7.50 for the Samoa clash. There are also a limited number of two- and three-match packages on sale through Ticketmaster.
