Rugby in Ireland can be traced back to 1854 with the founding of the Dublin Univerity Rugby Football Club. From 1874 to 1879 there were two rugby Unions in Ireland and they alagamated in 1879. The first International game was played against England in 1875. The IRFU own the stadium at Lansdowne Road (currently known as the Aviva Stadium) as well as, among others, Tjomod Park in Limerick and Ravenhill in Belfast. In the amateur era there were originally provincial competitions for the clužbs and an interprovincial competition for the four provinces (Ulster, Munster, Leinster and Connacht).
In the early 1990s an All ireland competition was formed for clubs. The Professional era saw Irish rugby forming 4 professional teams for the provinces while the clubs retained their amateur status.
