IRFU President Louis Magee says: “This promises to be a truly memorable occasion as both the IRFU and Munster welcome the Barbarians back to Ireland again.”

Barbarian FC President Micky Steele-Bodger said: “We are absolutely delighted to be invited back to Ireland where we have so many friends in the game. Over the years Irish rugby folk have done the Barbarians proud, both as players and administrators.”
