Aviva Stadium

Though not as large as Croke Park, Aviva Stadium has played host to its fair share of sporting glory, in both international rugby and soccer.

Once known as Lansdowne Road Stadium, the Aviva Stadium’s roots go back to the early 1870s when rugby enthusiasts, led by Henry Wallace Doveton Dunlop, set about creating a football pitch that would be the envy of the land. It took 300 cartloads of soil to raise the ground above the existing, sandy top soil, but they did it.

In 2007 the old stadium was demolished, and was reborn as the Aviva sStadium  was completed in 2010.
