Munster A games over 2015/16 have seen the likes of Darren Sweetnam, Gerhard van den Heever, Duncan WIlliams, Andrew Conway, Alex Wootton, and Billy Holland star for the men in red.
Meanwhile, fans will also have the chance to witness the future of rugby in the county as the Ennis Minis take to the pitch as part of the half time exhibition.
Fans will be treated to top class rugby on the pitch as well as refreshments and merchandise on the sidelines with Diageo set to provide a drinks stand and Murphy BBQs providing delicious food. Hot whiskeys will be available for purchase as well as hot teas, coffees, snacks and drinks while Ennis 2016/17 merchandise will also be available for purchase.
Tickets are available at the gates and online (ticketmaster.ie) and cost €10 (adult), €3 (junior), €20 (family, 2 adult & 2 junior).
Parking will be available at the Showgrounds adjacent to the Rugby Club while all wheelchair users will have parking access, a dedicated steward to assist and a viewing area for the match outside the clubhouse.
