The Lansdowne Road stadium was at the heart of so much of Irish sport for over a century -- from athletics to rugby and soccer it has seen the hopes of a nation raised and dashed: as well as the esctacy of victory! This lavishly-illustrated history covers it all, right up to the new Aviva stadium.

Lansdowne Road has long been renowned as a sacred place for international rugby and soccer.

In this affectionate history, the authors lift the lid on its greatest days and nights. From the birth of the stadium in 1873 till it closed for rebuilding in 2006, they bring to life fascinating stories such as that of the Native American lacrosse team, the brilliant athletic stars of the 1940s and 1950s, and the American Football experiment.

The triple crowns, stirring victories and memorable goals and tries that brought the crowd worldwide fame as ‘The Lansdowne Roar’ are all here, as well as the moments of comedy and tragedy that marked the life of Ireland’s oldest stadium.
